Booking and Information

Make sure you're towing skills are safe and up to scratch with our equine trailer towing clinic. The government scrapped the car and trailer towing test in 2021, but are you confident in towing, manoeuvring and reversing?

Your horse is precious and ensuring their safety whilst towing is understandably paramount to your peace of mind and their well-being. Picking up some extra skills and tips to help your horse remain calm, relaxed and ready for whatever rides you are planning to take is a great investment for your and your horse.

Whether you're a seasoned tower or just getting started join our specialist clinics with an equine savvy instructor from experts 'Towing Solutions', Britain's leading towing training organisation. 

With the option to share a two-hour session or individual one hour session. Sessions will be tailored to your individual challenges covering either:

  • Basic safety checks, hints and tips for coupling and uncoupling
  • Reversing & manoeuvres
  • Road driving

Please note within the 1 hour session it will not be possible to cover both reversing & road driving and you will be asked to choose which you would like to spend your time practicing. If you choose to share a 2 hour session you will have the option to cover both between you.

You might already have a trailer and be towing but want the reassurance of a lesson to boost your knowledge and confidence, or perhaps you're thinking of investing in a trailer and want to make sure you have some training before you head out on the road with your horse on board.

Bring your own car and trailer or use the car and trailer provided *note the trailer provided is not a horse trailer*
