KPH Ethos

Safety | Quality | Durability

The KPH ethos is to manufacture the safest possible horse transport for our customers and their horses.

Customer satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do.

The majority of our new business is gained from customer recommendations, so we recognise the importance of forging strong relationships that are built on trust.

The KPH team are dedicated to providing a service that is defined by the quality of our designs, durability of our horseboxes  and exceptional customer care.

We aim High

We possess a highly knowledgeable, long serving senior management team. We also believe in keeping an eye on the future and that’s why we make a significant investment in young people. Our apprentices provide an enthusiastic source of energy and inspiration for the whole company. We are proud of our workmanship and manufacture to last. For this reason it is extremely rare to see one of our preloved horseboxes for sale.

It is not unusual to see members of the team photographing each vehicle as it departs the workshop and of course we’d never let a KPH horsebox leave before our lovable pet Labradors Izzy and Gem have given them the final nod!

Delighted with my new AEOS QV. The build quality is excellent and the KPH features such as the internal flooring and sliding partition are top notch. The extras that I wanted to customise it to my preferred specification were no trouble for the KPH team. The whole process from my requesting of initial information, through the stages of placing an order, build schedule and then vehicle delivery has been seamless. Thank you KPH team! Kath.

Love the peace of mind of a quality built box! Kevin Parker knows how to maximise on safety and comfort for both humans and horses without compromising on payload. We've not had our lorry long, but great to drive and love it already! Spot the dog...... Many thanks KP and Team!

Very high standard of workmanship on our 4.5 tonne horsebox, it’s obvious a lot of care and attention has gone into the build and I’m sure it will give many years of good service. We’ll done all round 👍

AEOS 4.5 COMPACT Kevin Parker Horseboxes are the very best, their attention to safety detail of horse and humans while using the box is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble from start to finish enabling you to have a box that suits you and your horses every need. My 17hh Warmblood travels like a dream. Plenty of room for him and with a payload of 1.7 Ton there are no weight issues. This is my second horsebox from Kevin Parker and I truly cannot recommend their wagon builds highly enough. Extremely safe, comfortable and smart transport for you and your precious Unicorn. Thank you to Kevin & Janet Parker and their fantastic team.

A positive experience from start to finish. Incredibly professional process with proactive communication from KPH along the way. The quality of the build and attention to detail is excellent. Although not the cheapest, value for money compared to other suppliers we looked at is excellent. The personal service from Kevin, Janet and the team is the cherry on top.

We bought a 3.5 tonne horse box in February 2020 from Kevin. It was designed to our specification. From the start of the build right through to now we have been extremely impressed with the box and the service provided. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Kevin and his team. The box is very sturdy and safety is at the top of the list when designing and building. A thoroughly professional company who look after and understand their customers. Would certainly go back in the future!

Meet Kevin & Janet

Janet Parker

“My relationship with horseboxes started as a young lad when I landed my dream job as a coach builder for Goldline horseboxes and it was here that I made the decision to qualify as a coded welder and rise up the ranks to foreman. As my career progressed I had the opportunity to speak to more and more customers and this made me realise the immense satisfaction I gained from turning their wish lists into a gleaming finished product and this is what drove Janet and I towards starting our own business. To this day, the most rewarding aspect of our job and the thing that still excites us the most is the moment we hand over the keys to a happy customer and walk them around their brand new KPH horsebox.”

Our Workshop

Our horseboxes are designed and manufactured by time served professionals.

We have put together an excellent team who are very proud of our coach built Helios and Aeos horseboxes. Our team of sprayers have worked in the aircraft industry and again use the highest quality products, not just on the outside paintwork but also underneath the horsebox.

Our attention to detail throughout the build process is unrivalled, giving us the confidence to include a two year warranty on all our body work.

Because each KPH horsebox is a bespoke build, almost every aspect can be chosen by the customer.

Our standard builds have a high specification, with most items being exclusive to ourselves.  These include, solar charging, large solar air extraction, Coat-X spray on polyurea coating, stainless steel ramps, rear frames and horse safety cages. Safety is of paramount importance in our builds with strength and longevity built into every horsebox as standard!

Payload and horse safety must be amongst the top considerations and as an example our lightest Helios weighs just 4.7 tonnes and our heaviest Helios with all the extras, just 5.38 tonnes.  To achieve these high payloads and at the same time manufacture a horsebox that is stronger and safer, has taken years of expertise and considerable research.  All our horseboxes benefit from Coat-X polyurea coating sprayed on our aluminium floors. This removes the need to fit older style heavy rubber mats and kick sheet.  This product alone has many benefits and has transformed our horse areas and ramps into something quite unique.

We pride ourselves on being able to offer a full range of services from coach building advice and design, commercial spraying, Polyurea spraying, to vinyl stripes and just as importantly, customer after care and service.

Our Sprayshop

The commercial spray shop has proved invaluable for our KPH horsebox builds. Rather than manufacture a horsebox to completion then drive off the premises to have it painted, we paint at each stage of the build process. This increases the quality of our finished product in both looks and longevity.

Unfortunately horseboxes notoriously rot from the underside of the skirt up. So, as part of our commitment to building an unrivalled name in quality with the KPH brand, our commercial spray shop team paint every horsebox at the sub frame stage with 3 coats of protective paint and at the end of the build process, when the horsebox enters the spray shop again for full painting they respray the underside once more. They paint any added parts and then Waxoyl the whole underside.

For all our paintwork  we use only Premium quality products and paint. Our paint procedures include full preparation; etch primer, 2k HS primer, base coat (metallic) and 2k clear coat or 2k solid colour.

If you require Vinyl decals or sprayed paint masks on your horsebox they can be designed to your own personal choice or we can design them for you.

What our customers think

It's a few weeks now since we collected our new 7.5T conversion. It is amazing. We love it, the ponies love it, and with its attention to detail, solid build quality, emphasis on durability, and features that make our lives easier, we are thrilled with it. It is above and beyond all our expectations.

I have recently had a Helios 7.5 tonne lorry from Kevin and his team. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with the lorry. The lorry itself is built so well and the quality speaks for itself. We are still finding very clever design features that make the lorry extra special. Not only is he lorry exactly what we wanted (and more!) I have to give credit to Kevin and his team. They have from start to finish being incredible and extremely patient with me (I always seemed to have so many queries and sent far too many emails!!). Absolutely chuffed to bits with our new lorry. Would highly highly recommend Kevin Parker and his team!!

Checking out horsebox companies!

I started on my list of more than 20 companies. Many didn’t even make it past the first phone call and a big black line went through their names. Why? Because many were extolling the virtues of their living accommodation and could not answer even the most basic of safety questions and truthfully did not seem to care. One by one the big well-known brands fell by the wayside and I still hadn’t got to price! My black Sharpie was having a great time and I was getting worried that I would run out of companies!

Then I spoke to Kevin at KPH and the world turned on its axis. Our first conversation was about safety, security and weight. His level of detail and knowledge blew me away, every question was patiently answered with lots of additional detail with questions for me to think about. Nothing was too much trouble even at that early stage and there wasn’t even a hint of a sale at that time. He wanted to make sure that I was equipped to make an informed and sound decision. I learnt an awful lot about horsebox manufacturing, information I would have never know if I had not found this guy.
