We also offer insurance for horse trailers.
What is a motorised horsebox?
A motorised horsebox, or horse lorry as they're sometimes known, is a type of vehicle that is used to transport horses and ponies.
Motorised horsebox breakdown cover available
Breaking down with horses in tow can be extremely stressful, which is why we offer comprehensive horse lorry breakdown cover as an upgrade. Not only does this cover the vehicle, but we also make sure your horses are taken to a location of your choice in a new trailer if necessary.
Even if your horsebox has broken down on your journey, give us a call on our 24/7 claims hotline number and we'll send out help, which should be with you within the hour.

Can I get motorised horsebox insurance for business use?
Yes – we cover transporting your horses for commercial use. Whether you're taking them to a buyer or to a horse show, we can help.
Am I covered for horse shows and events?
Horsebox insurance covers you for the journey to and from the horse show or event, but you'll have to check your policy to ensure it includes public liability cover when you're parked at the event. Let us know if this is something you need.
Do I need a special driving licence to drive a horse lorry?
This will depend on how big your horsebox is. You won't need a special licence for small horseboxes, but for many other types, you will.

Can other people drive my motorised horsebox?
Like standard vehicle insurance, you can add other people to your policy – as long as they have the necessary driving licence.
How can I save money on horse lorry insurance?
Horse lorry insurance can actually be quite inexpensive. At Adrian Flux, we offer discounts for those driving limited mileage, as well as Thatcham-approved security features, such as an immobiliser or tracker.
Can I still get cover even if I have a high-value horsebox?
Yes, as a specialist insurance broker, we're usually able to cover you when others cannot. Give us a call for a free, no-obligation quote.
