A new rampless horsebox, which can double up as a box van or flat bed, was revealed at Horse of the Year Show.

The 3.5 tonne version was unveiled this month.

You load the horses with the box body flat on the ground, eliminating the need for a ramp, then lift it up and on to the vehicle.

But the concept has split H&H readers. Some branded the £42,000 box “fiddly”, while others felt it could be useful for horses that find ramps difficult.
