HELP!! need a car

Heya all

As a last and desperate attempt I thought that I would seek help here.!

Ok the problem is that this weekend we are supposed to be going for a 3 day horse ride in the juras ( should be fun ) but, one of the transport options for the horses has broken down and I cant find anywhere that rents either a car that can tow a double horse float ( with only one horse in it ) or self drive horse transport( for 3 large horses ).

So I thought I would see if anyone here knew of somewhere or had a car capable that I could borrow for the weekend - essentially swap for my car?????????

I know that i probably shouldnt put my number up here but i am desperate so please if you have any ideas call me on (never mind prob solved now)

Well all you need is a not-so-small car that has a tow-bar right? Are you saying that the car rental companies cannot provide any vehicles with a tow-bar? That's very strange.

Indeedand the few that do have tow bars either dont have the engine capacity or are hellishly expensive - sad but true , I forget that in some countries they dont seem to tow ( almost everyone in Australia has tow bars )
