AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Sarah Evers
Lexington, KY – The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) announces a new partnership with Equine Motorcoach™, who has recently developed the most modern vehicle in equine transportation, to become “The Official Horse Transport Vehicle of the USEF.” As part of the partnership, Equine Motorcoach is the presenting sponsor of the 2007 Rolex/USEF National Show Jumping Championship CSI***, the 2008 Adequan®/USEF Open Reining National Championship and the 2008 Rolex/USEF National Show Jumping Championship CSI***.
“There is no other vehicle available that offers the innovation of an Equine Motorcoach,” said USEF’s Chief Operating Officer John Long. “Equine Motorcoach will have a significant impact on the lives of equestrians by making it more comfortable and convenient to travel to horse shows. In addition, every time a USEF member purchases an Equine Motorcoach, a portion of the sale helps to financially support USEF programs.”
The Equine Motorcoach is the only vehicle available in the U.S. that combines a recreational vehicle and horse trailer into one unit. The new Equine Motorcoach combines the comfort and amenities of a top-of-the-line RV with accommodations for horse transportation, including room for tack and other supplies.
Founded by co-owners Tom and Carolyn Stinnett and Julie Calzone, Equine Motorcoach caters to very active horse show participants while supporting equestrian efforts nationally and internationally.
Every Equine Motorcoach is built to the customer’s specifications including exterior finishes and interior amenities. The final stage of the custom production of the Equine Motorcoach is completed in Europe, where these types of vehicles have been around for over a decade. Volvo Trucks of North America is producing the truck chassis for the Equine Motorcoach. Coaches are available in 3, 4-6 and 7-9 horse configurations.
“We did our homework,” said Tom Stinnett. “Americans love to go RVing and more people are staying on the horse show grounds so that they can take better care of their horses on the road. Now they can combine the two passions.”
