When it comes to horseboxes we understand how important it is to you, that your horses travel safely and comfortably, and when you make the decision to purchase a small horsebox you want the best quality at the best price.

We only wanted to supply bespoke coachbuilt small horseboxes of the highest quality and design but at realistic prices, and we are sure you will agree the John Oates horsebox range provides just that.

Every custom build 3.5t and 4.5t are not only fit for purpose, they are robust, providing paramount safety, they have been designed with innovation, and beautifully built to the highest standard.

John Oates manufacture the boxes on site at their Darleston works and each build is overseen by the owner Michael who has over 30 years experience in horsebox design and build.


The John Oates demo horseboxes we stock are standard Classic spec boxes, so if the spec meets your requirements the boxes are ready to drive away.

This is a long stall 3.5t boxes with double doors to the living/tack area and an extra wide rear door so in the event of an emergency you can exit the horses from the back of the box.

Whilst there are various size and style partitions available we prefer the full height partitions, accompanied by a full height sniffer board.

The standard Classic spec has a basic living/tack area with saddle and bridle racks, a wardrobe and seats both sides with under seat storage.

Additional features to the spec can go where ever you choose, padded partitions, collapsible brest bar, ceiling fan, camera system, hob, sink, fridge etc . The benefit of purchasing a new build horsebox is you get to customise the exact spec and layout to suit you, without compromise but we think the standard classic ticks most boxes, an dis a super example of a 3.5t horsebox.

If your requirements are going to stretch the limits of a 3.5t horsebox, you may want to consider a 4.5t Weekender. With full living including sleeping for 2, a shower and toilet, and still delivering a massive 2t payload.
