We cherish our workmanship and it’s not unusual to see members of the team photographing each vehicle as it departs the workshop. 


The Range 

The Helios horsebox combines the perfect balance between aesthetic appeal, functionality and most important of all, a pleasing and comfortable environment for the horse. To achieve this we embraced a range of new materials and incorporated the latest technologies. Working from the ground up, with the lowest possible load height and our exclusive curved roof system, the Helios design achieves reduced fuel consumption, wind noise and swaying. Not only increasing the internal height but also providing a much smoother, stress-free and a safer ride for the horses. The Aeos horsebox range is designed with two rear facing stalls and at 2.41 metre horse area height it can take large horses. Its fuel consumption is highly economical and with significant reduction in road noise is extremely quiet. Equipped with anti-lock brakes, new alloy wheels with deep tread tyres and a very low centre of gravity, the safety-conscious Aeos is the perfect horsebox for customers moving up from towing.
