Towed by the donated Daihatsu 4×4 is this horse ambulance trailer. Both car and trailer are fitted with blue lights and are used at equestrian events around the country. The trailer opens at both ends to allow the casualty to walk on and off easily. This is probably the only type of ambulance you won’t see at a hospital!
