Riley Horseboxes is a custom horsebox manufacturer which is operated by George Riley at Murrumbateman NSW. George grew up around horses and has always ridden. He started off eventing but after meeting his wife, Emily his focus turned to show jumping. George has built numerous horse bodies for himself and wanted to push the boundaries of both style and functionality. The result was Brett Parbery’s truck. It is perfect blend of luxury and practicality. The external styling was specifically made for the Mercedes Atego and achieves a finish like no other. The horse section is safe and elegant. At its completion George decided to take on more work and Riley Horseboxes was born.

HORSE AREA UPGRADE
You might have the right truck but need it altered to suit your changing needs.
The white Mercedes Atego had a good body to begin with but the horse section had flimsy dividers and did not fit large horses. Internal front and rear walls were redone with new rubber and stainless steel. Safe and simple new hot dip galvanised dividers were made to accommodate large horses
The second truck had adequate dividers for it's original purpose of transporting smaller horses.. The upgrade included more padding and support. A new hinging system to eliminate sharp edges and allowing for easier loading. The dividers allow various setups depending on horse size. 8 horses can be travelled straight across or the bays can be extended for 6 horses on the angle. There is also the provision to give extra width for poor travellers or mare and foals.
Trailers can also be modified to suit your needs. This gooseneck was originally built for smaller horses. The low roof height and rear door design was problematic. The solution was to remanufacture the floor and raise the entire gooseneck. This gained over 1ft extra height in the horse area. New hot dip galvanised dividers, stainless steel and flooring in addition to a new tailgate and lift up rear door completed the upgrade.
