Horses and Livestock

Horsbox Trailer

When horses are being towed, they have a tendency to rest most of their weight on their hind legs.

Because of this, horseboxes usually have their twin axles set behind centre.

There are strict guidelines for carriage of livestock, conditions of floor, partitions, tethering points etc.
