Equine Motorcoach™ Transports and Trailers On Display August 22-29 at the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville, Kentucky
(Louisville, Ky) - The World’s Championship Horse Show, the world’s richest and most prestigious horse show, attracts spectators and competitors from across the world and includes over 2,000 horses competing for more than $1 million in awards. However, when it began in 1902 at Churchill Downs, horses traveled to the show on foot and by train and winners received only a sterling silver trophy.
“Now, they can travel in an Equine Motorcoach,” said Ben Yates, national sales manager for Equine Motorcoach. “We will be on display, August 22-29, which is a good time and place for potential customers to visit us. The airport is less than five minutes away andLouisville is nearly the epicenter of the where horses travel.”
The Equine Motorcoach, Equine RV and Equine Carriage Trailer will be located opposite Barn A in the stabling area at the Kentucky State Fair.
The exciting and prestigious World’s Championship Horse Show is held annually in conjunction with the Kentucky State Fair and crowns world champion Saddlebreds in different divisions.
Horses compete in divisions including Three-Gaited, Five-Gaited, Fine Harness, Saddlebred Pleasure, Saddle Seat Equitation, Hackney/Harness Ponies, Roadster, In-Hand, and American Saddlebred. Each division includes several classes for amateurs, ladies, amateur ladies, and junior exhibitors, as well as younger horses and ponies.
Horses or riders who win earn the title of world’s champion (abbreviated WC). A second place finish is given the title of reserve world’s champion (RWC). Horses may also earn the world’s grand championship (WGC) or world’s championship of champions (WCC) title.
“Our market includes a variety of horse owners and disciplines,” said Yates. “People that transport their own horses and want to stay with them are our customers. The popularity and ease of RVing has increased the marketability for our transports. Most show grounds and campgrounds are now available for this type of rig. We build the all in one RV and horse transport and RVs that tow up to 30,000 pounds. We give horses a ride and people a great place to stay.”
