Occasional pull

I am looking to purchase a car that could legally tow a double horsebox with one horse, yet still be able to drive to work every day and not spend too much money on fuel. My budget is around £2,000. Any ideas?

An old Shogun or Pajero or Nissan Terrano II or Daihatsu Fourtrack. No normal car can safely tow that sort of weight, which is likely to be
around 2,000 kilograms. Depending on when you passed your test you might need to pass a separate towing test.
