Caballero Horse Transport

Caballero Horse Transport serves Colorado and surrounding states with custom door-to-door, special horse transport - mares with foals, injured / ailing horses or horses/owners with special needs. This is not mass transit for your horse. Caballero Horse Transport provides roomy, clean accommodations for your special equine. The trailer is completely open, with no dividers - It is a roomy, luxurious bedded box stall on wheels. The trailer is completely cleaned and disinfected between transports.

Ask yourself these questions when you get that quote from the mass transit company:

How many other horses have sneezed in this feeder?
Will my horse really get water and food on the trip?
Just how much does that driver know about horses? Really?
Is the truck and trailer adequately maintained?
Don`t let cost be your only consideration when turning your special horse over to a stranger. Check references.

Kate Caballero Owner/operator Kate Caballero (featured on NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw) is an accomplished horsewoman, with over 40 years of equine experience in many disciplines. Her love of horses, combined with her extensive driving accomplishments give Kate unique qualifications to care for the safe transport of your horse.

Tips on Transporting your Horse Safely

When it comes to transporting your horse there are many things that could go wrong. At the end of the day, your horse has a mind of their own and if you don`t take extra precautions you may find yourself with disaster on your hands. Transporting horses is perfectly safe, but there are a few things you should make sure you`re doing to ensure your horse`s safety, but also your own.

Water and Feed

Depending on how long your journey is this will vary, but making sure your horse is well watered and well fed on the journey will make sure they stay healthy throughout and also will help minimize any irritation they may be feeling while on the road.

If your horse is hungry or thirsty, there`s a greater chance they`ll become grumpy and start moving around and doing things in the trailer that aren`t necessarily safe.

Use Bedding in the Trailer

Using bedding in the trailer is important to decrease the stress on your horse`s joints during travel. Depending on what bedding you use, some may not be conducive to travel because of the dust that will fly around.

In this case you could consider using different bedding like draw, or alternatively get your horse a fly mask to wear in the trailer.
horse Bedding
Take Rests Every Few Hours

Not only will your horse be calmer if they can get out and stretch and move around every few hours, but it will also give them a chance to get out of a small and enclosed space. If they`re in there for too long they could start to throw their body around to get out and that`s the last thing you want because it could impair your safety and theirs.

These stops are also necessary to give your horse a rest from the exhausting need of balancing while in the trailer on their legs.

Shipping Boots and Leg Protection

When traveling you should make sure your horse has shipping boots applied (and properly) and wraps to protect your horse`s legs. These wraps can help provide support and to prevent them from swelling up when they`re in the trailer. Then when you take breaks you can take them off and let your horse`s legs air out before getting back in the trailer.

travel boots
Make Sure The Trailer Is The Right Size

A large horse in a tiny trailer is going to be really uncomfortable and it also could strain muscles in your horse`s body by not allowing them to stretch out and be comfortable. Making sure your trailer is an appropriate size will keep your horse healthy and ensure they have a comfortable journey.

Taking trips with your horse can be a lot of fun and has the potential to go wrong, but with some smart planning you and your horse will have a safe and uneventful journey.

My Rental Horsebox

My Rental Horsebox
My Rental Horsebox is a unique service allowing horsebox owners to profit from their horseboxes by making them available for self-drive horsebox hire. We have two offerings:

1) Our standard Horsebox Rental Scheme - This allows horsebox owners to make their horsebox available for hire to anyone in the UK who is looking for horsebox hire, by listing it on our website. We take care of all your horsebox hire marketing, booking and payments and cover your horsebox for self-drive hire under our policy in exchange for 25% of your horsebox hire income.

2) Our Rent to Hire offering - This is a brand new offering where we rent you a brand new lorry on a long term basis which you can use for your own personal use or for hiring out to other people. It`s a brilliant way of getting the use of a fantastic new lorry without the upfront cost of purchase. Depending on the number of self-drive hires you get, your brand new lorry may cost you nothing at all or make you a profit! Contact us to find out more.

Horsebox lorry owners spend on average around £4000 per annum on their lorries and if they only need them every couple of weeks in the competition season, this could amount to £200 or £300 per trip before fuel!!

2) Our members are required to maintain their vehicles in line with VOSA guidelines for vehicles of the relevant class and because most of our members also use their vehicles themselves, you can be additionally confident they maintain them to the highest standards to protect themselves and their horses as well as yours!

How to Hire a Horsebox with My Rental Horsebox

Search for a horsebox available for self drive horsebox hire near you

Can`t find a match? Contact us with our form, or send an email to or and we will search our new client database or our share scheme database to confirm if there is a lorry near you.

Sharing A Horsebox

Why share lifts?
With the ever increasing cost of fuel, it makes sense to keep in touch with local people to find out if you can share a lorry with someone going to the same destination. Please note the owner should drive the lorry and only accept a contribution towards fuel with no intention to make a profit, to avoid operator licence implications. You cannot offer your lorry for self-drive hire through this scheme or drive other peoples horses for profit as this may invalidate your insurance.

Horsebox share scheme
If you wish to operate a regular self-drive hire share scheme, you can register for this service here. Under this scheme we can add your lorry to our self drive hire policy for £25 per day to ensure both lorry and sharer are appropriately covered under a self-drive hire policy.
