FACTS

Horsebox Breakdown Cover
OHTO is the foremost suppier of horsebox breakdown cover and trailer breakdown cover in the UK and Europe. Founded in 1985 by Managing Director and equestrian showing competitor, Jon Phillips. It was a direct response to a horsebox breakdown experienced by one of his showing friends on the way home from a show. In spite of being a member of one of the major rescue organisations he failed to get any help at all and ended up paying a small fortune to get his horses home. Now, thanks to the formation of the OHTO, thousands of members are guaranteed immediate UK back-up. The exclusive PRP Tyre Service network take care of tyre problems, whilst a further 10,000 garages and service points cover the UK and Europe. One phone call is all it takes to gain instant access to the largest and most experienced equestrian breakdown service available. Averaged statistics tell us that every horsebox in the UK could break down at least once this year. Even the best-maintained horsebox, car or trailer may suddenly develop a fault that requires instant attention or emergency parts. Many, who are not members of the OHTO, will be stranded for hours with distressed animals on lonely country roads. With The Organisation of Horsebox & Trailer Owners you know you will get the best possible breakdown cover and real peace of mind. Our awards include the BHS Sefton Award For Outstanding Contributions to Equestrian Safety and the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award. If you want the best for your animals and your family then the OHTO is the only choice, just follow the membership link below, or renew with the button above.
The Organisation of Horsebox and Trailer Owners Breakdown Cover is fully comprehensive, supplying all areas of equestrian sport and leisure with the best available service throughout the UK and Europe. Since 1985 we have attended over 70,000 breakdowns ensuring we have the best suppliers, the best operators and the most experience. All our staff and call handlers have extensive equestrian knowledge and most have owned their own horses or worked with them. Our parent company PRP Rescue Services is the largest of its kind in Europe, supplying the equestrian support for many leading breakdown schemes as well as the Highways Agency and the OHTO. We always supply fresh professional horse transport if your vehicle cannot be repaired at roadside. Because we are the only equestrian breakdown company recognised by the Highways Agency, closing main roads and motorways or using rolling road-blocks to facilitate the offloading of your horses is never a problem (the image above is of a recent breakdown where, working with the Highways Agency and Police Traffic Division, we closed the main A12 to transfer a members’ horses). Our tyre services are also the best available, combining several of the major UK suppliers. If new tyres are supplied we never ask our members for payment at the time (unlike most other suppliers). The tyres are always invoiced at a later date complete with a copy of our suppliers invoice so that you can see that we have not marked the prices up in any way or included a handling charge. Joining the OHTO could not be more simple and is a must for every responsible travelling horse owner. Click on the link below to find a scheme that fits your equestrian lifestyle.
