How stupid is your horsebox?

 

We build and sell 2-stall horseboxes in Scotland.

As a result, we see a lot of trade-ins, so we are constantly looking at the way other manufacturers build theirs, and asking ourselves — is this what the customer really wants?

The same question often comes up at management and production meetings, because we need to be sure, before the first drawing is drawn, or the first pop-rivet popped.

How many times have you looked at your horsebox, or trailer, scratched your head, and wondered “what were they thinking?”  If you have, you’ll know exactly where I’m coming from.

So here’s the $64,000 question. Would you be willing to share with us your pet peeves, those things you wish they would have done better, AND all the great features your horsebox offers too, of course?  Because, if you would, you can help us create your perfect horsebox, which, new or second-hand — who knows — you may just want to own one day.

Please leave me a message below with your personal perspective, or use the contact form; or maybe just send an email to hello@fotheringham.scot. I’m not asking you to criticize the manufacturer; just tell me what works for you, what doesn’t, and what you need from a horsebox. OK?
