We Are Bringing It All To The Young Riders!

(Lexington, Ky.) - The Equine Motorcoach™, Equine RV and Equine Carriage Trailer will all be on display and for sale at the Adequan/FEI North American Junior and Young Riders Championship, July 14-19 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky.
We give horses a ride.
"This event has given us great exposure and created sales for us," said Ben Yates, national sales manager for Equine Motorcoach, LLC. "We have built out the line of products and have a lot to show this year. We are building RVs and Equine Motorcoaches that can tow up to 30,000 pounds. Our trailers haul horses, cargo and cars."

Floor plans and specifications will be available for review on various models that the transport company manufactures. The all in on RV/horse transport and the tow transports produces a variety of stall configurations, interior and exterior fit and finishes.
Buyers come to Equine Motorcoach to upgrade horse transportation and on the road living needs. Currently, all units are titled as RVs and can transport multiple horses. They are user-friendly and manufactured in the United States.
After taking the Equine Motorcoach and Equine Carriage Trailer on the road to a hunter jumper show in Illinois, the national reining show in Oklahoma City, and customers in Missouri and Iowa, we are excited to be back at the Kentucky Horse Park," said Yates. "We will be in our own backyard for the next three to four weeks. Many people have asked when we will be back at the Horse Park and where they can see our first class products. We are taking orders and selling the current transports and trailers.
The Adequan/FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North (NAJYRC) is the premier equestrian competition in North America for junior and young riders, age 14-21. Young equestrians vie for team and individual FEI medals in the three Olympic equestrian disciplines of show jumping, dressage, eventing, the Para-Olympic discipline of para-dressage and the FEI World Equestrian Games disciplines of reining and endurance.

The competition is run under rules of the FEI (Federation Equestre Internationale), the international governing body for equestrian sport, and is the only FEI championship held annually on this continent.
The NAJYRC began in 1974 as an eventing challenge between the United States and Canada. A dressage championship was added in 1981, and show jumping was added in 1982. The first complete Young Riders championship was held in British Columbia, Canada in 1982. The Championships were expanded to officially include a championship division for juniors in 2006. The discipline of reining was added to the official schedule in 2008, endurance joined in 2011 and this year para-dressage will join the Championships.
Full size kitchen and living accommodations.

Queen bed, bunk beds and laundry.
