How It All Began
Welcome to the Happiness Horsebox! This unique vehicle has been funded by equestrian and rural organisations and charities to help people with disabling conditions to access the countryside. And it has already won a Sport England Innovation Award
In this video, you'll see how the clever design and a heavy duty lifting ramp enables so many activities and connections to horses. Families and friends can enjoy countryside and equestrian activities together again.
From a simple idea.....
This CAD video animation was created by one of our volunteers in lockdown as part of his Duke of Edinburgh award! He was amazed to see the real thing when lockdown ended!
It showcases the features of our horsebox, including the lifting platform, pop-out side, kitchen and loo. It is a 12 tonne vehicle, so up to three horses can travel in it, facing into the living area from behind solid partitions.
So many lives can be enriched by the Happiness Horsebox, mine was revolutionised in just a few hours, because, for the first time in 25 years, I could see the event from the comfort of my chair without worrying about people crowding around me.
it would have meant so much to me to have been able to meet my horses when I was in hospital after my accident..... Months of rehabilitation inside were not easy... The Happiness Horsebox would have helped me so much
