If you're talking road vehicles, there was a Matchbox Superfast model made in 1977 by Lesney and that's "No40 - Horse Box". A good model that's the correct scale for OO gauge.

There's also a Marshall Horsebox Mk 7, also by Lesney. That's No 35, but although it's supposed to be 1/75 scale, I would say it's slightly too small, as the scale dimensions if it was OO gauge are 13ft long x 6ft 3" wide x 6ft 6" tall.
I'd say this one is 1/100 scale, so it resides on a farm at the back of my layout.

The Maudsley Horse Box by Dinky is definately O gauge. See May and June 2007 issues of model rail for two interesting articles on detailing of both road and rail horse boxes.
