LEXINGTON, Ky. – Equine Motorcoach and Equine Carriage Trailer are on site at the MayDaze Horse Trials, KDA Spring Warm Up & Annual Dressage Show and the Kentucky Invitational High School Rodeo at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., this weekend.
The Equine Motorcoach and Equine Carriage Trailer on display can transport up to seven horses, tack, feed, hay, car and people to horse shows and events, the release from the organization stated. The stacker in the Carriage supports 4,000 pounds of cargo and feed. The Equine Motorcoach sleeps four and has a climate controlled horse transport area complete with cameras and hay pod. It can tow up to 30,000 pounds.
“People are amazed at how much living space there is,” said Ben Yates, national sales manager for Equine Motorcoach. “The full size kitchen, bath and living accommodations make it comfortable to be on the road.”
The MayDaze Horse Trials brings together more than 500 horses and their riders from approximately 20 states to compete in a three-day event competition. Introductory to intermediate levels are part of the competition and this spring event is known to be very beneficial in the training process for green to advanced horses and riders.
The Spring Warm Up Show and the Annual Dressage Show combine for the first events of the season for the Kentucky Dressage Association (KDA). This event will feature United States Dressage Federation (USDF), United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), and International Federation of Equestrian Sports (FEI) sanctioned classes. Introductory level tests all the way up to Grand Prix level tests will be on display as well as suitability, Para-equestrian, and freestyle classes.
The Kentucky High School Rodeo Association and the Kentucky Junior High School Rodeo Association join together for the Kentucky Invitational High School Rodeo. The events taking place during this rodeo are Bareback Bronc Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding, Steer Wrestling, Tie-Down Calf Roping, Bull Riding, Breakaway Calf Roping, Goat Tying, Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, and Ribbon Roping. Participants from Indiana and West Virginia will also be competing against the Kentucky competitors. This rodeo serves as the last qualifying rodeo for the high school participants before the state finals, and it is the state finals for junior high school participants.
“These are great events for us and just down the road from our home base,” said Yates. “These competitors travel frequently and are often with their families. Our transports make it easier for the horses and the people passengers on the road and at the show. Horse show facilities like the Kentucky Horse Park feature campgrounds for the competitors. There is nothing like staying at the horse show to make it a more pleasurable experience. There is the comfort of home and the close proximity to care for the horses.”
