Oklahoma, OK – Billed as “The New Breed Of Luxury” and designated as the official horse transport vehicle of the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), the new Equine Motorcoach™ is in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The all-in-one RV and horse transport is on display at the 2008 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Derby at the Oklahoma State Fair Park.
The NRHA Derby is the host competition USEF Reining Championships, which include the Open, USEF National CRI* Reining Championship, and the USEF National Youth Reining Championships. The Derby will showcase the nation’s best reiners at the State Fair Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, June 23-28, 2008.
“It is our first time to participate with the reining world,” said Bob Wiegand, event and sales director for Equine Motorcoach. “We are very excited to be a part of this prestigious event and cannot wait to see what the response is from this very active and mobile part of the horse competition world. “
“The New Breed of Luxury means horses and their owners travel and live in style,” said Wiegand. “The only one of its kind, Equine Motorcoach™ is safety and comfort allowing each horse to be better rested and ready to compete. Up to six horses ride comfortably in a stylish mobile stable.”
In just seconds the versatile lounge converts into a queen suite fit for royalty. A combination of upper bunks and a full size bed over the cab bring the sleeping accommodations up to six. The larger standard table makes dining an elegant experience. Waterford Crystal, engraved china, and sterling silver flatware enhance the luxury and elegance of Equine Motorcoach™.
Fully equipped with an AM/FM/CD player complete with an iPod port, satellite TV, and Xbox 360, Equine Motorcoach™ continues to make an extended stay pleasant and enjoyable. Wine storage, stainless steel sinks, dishwasher, electric cook surface, convection microwave and built in television are just the beginning of what can be expected from Equine Motorcoach™.
The horse transport area accommodates up to six horses comfortably, while providing an air-ride to ensure that the horses are ready to compete as soon as they arrive at a competition. “The amenities for the horses are what everyone tell us is a ‘wow’,” said Wiegand. “You just have to see it to believe it. People tell us the pictures just don’t do it justice. It’s spacious. We’ve loaded a 19.1 hand horse in it and he had a lot of room to in front, behind and above him.”
Through its sponsorship to the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA), the 2008 Adequan/USEF National Open Reining Championship presented by Equine Motorcoach™ will have $25,000 added money. The Adequan/USEF National Open Reining Championship presented by Equine Motorcoach™ will bring the nation’s finest reiners together to compete for their chance to land a spot on the U.S. Reining Team. The top four reiners from the U.S. will go on to compete at the first-ever FEI World Reining Championships in September in Manerbio, Italy.
For the first time, the NRHA Derby will host the Adequan®/USEF National Open Reining Championship presented by Equine Motorcoach™ and the Selection Trial for the North American Junior and Young Rider Championship (NAJYRC) Reining teams. 2008 marks the first year that reining has been included in the NAJYRC.
