With so many different brands of 3.5t horseboxes on the market now it must be very hard to decide which brand to choose, we also had this similar problem in 2005 when we started Atacanter, to know which brand would suit us when setting up a Horsebox Rental company. After trying several UK brands which were not fit for purpose we discovered Theault. 

Theault have been coachbuilding since 1924 in Normandy, France and now the state-of-the-art factory produces horse trucks from 3.5t – 26t for many countries throughout the world. 
 
With innovation being at the heart of the desire to produce a quality horsebox that can be used easily by anyone and travelling all horses to their destination in optimum comfort, with each vehicle coming euro tunnel compliant many horses are travelled throughout Europe with ease. 
 
Theault are constantly innovating new products and designs to make the existing product even better, trying new techniques on the production line including robotic welding machines and quality checks completed at the end of each stage of the production, ensuring that you are getting the best.  
 
The 3.5t can be as bespoke as you require, we can offer you many different options to make your horsebox as simple or luxury as you require, with natural leather and cork as a popular seating choice. 
 
The main models we offer to the UK market are the Morpheo (high luxury) Proteo Switch (luxury work tool) Firsteo Stud (solid transporter choice), videos of each model can be found on our website www.atacanter.co.uk.
