Disappointments with horse transport
Sometimes the bigger stables organize the transport to tournaments or retreats, however, you might have already made the experience that it doesn’t always work out the way you’d like it to: people turn up late, then there are arguments about which horse should go into which trailer because person A doesn’t like person B and thus doesn’t want her horse to share a horse box with person B’s horse. You know those kinds of stories. It wastes people’s time and in the end nobody feels better.
Or maybe you have made the experience that you relied on someone to transport your horse to a tournament but they did not make it on time and you missed your turn in the tournament, losing the chance to get any of the prices! It’s very frustrating to stand there, waiting for your horse, looking at the watch, knowing that you can’t do anything without your horse!
Horse box hire is the solution
Wouldn’t it be much better to be in control in such situations? Thanks to horse box hire midlands, you can take over the reigns. All you need is a driver’s license that would allow you to drive bigger cars/vans. If you have to transport your horse regularly, i.e. once a month or even more often, then you might even want to think about buying your own horse box. However, horse boxes aren’t very cheap and if you only need transport for your horse every now and then, horse box rental would be a better and more affordable solution.
You can rent horse boxes for a day, two days, a whole weekend or for even longer periods if you need to stay somewhere for a longer time. Most companies that provide horse boxes to their customers will have specials deals if you book for a whole weekend of even for a whole week. They can deliver the horse box right to where you need it, or you can come and visit them to pick the horse box up yourself. No matter which option you choose, you should make sure that you have a good look at the horse box, also check the insides to see whether everything is nice and clean. You also need to ask the company whether you will have to clean the horse box after you have used it or whether they will take over that job – sometimes they will charge you an extra fee if you don’t want to do the cleaning of the box yourself.
Make sure that you do return the horse box in time or let the company know if you are late for some reason (e.g. a traffic jam or a delay in the tournament). Another person might have booked the same horse box and during busy periods it might be hard to find another box if the company doesn’t get enough warning in time.
