Take your horse along for a test drive!
Northern Horseboxes offers customers the chance to take their animals long when they test drive the new RunStar Horse Shuttle.
[UKPRwire, Wed Aug 08 2007] Northern Horseboxes have devised a novel way to help potential customers decide if their newly launched RunStar Horse Shuttle is the right transport for them and their steed.
If they live within a 150-mile radius of Northern Horseboxes’s Darlington base their demonstrator model can be booked to visit a customers premises so both animal and rider can experience the vehicle themselves.
Mike Crawley, Managing Director of Northern Horseboxes: “We know our customers can’t tell if this kind of vehicle is right for them by looking at it in a showroom, this is why we are happy to bring it out and take their animals for a test drive too!”
Based on a Renault Master or Vauxhall Movano van the conversion utilises the space available to an impressive effect. The rear of the vehicle is split into two areas; the first has ample room to carry two horses up to 16.2 hands high, the second is a ‘grooms area’ for the humans, which includes tack boxes.
Mike Crawley comments: “With the general increase in running costs many owners are now looking to downsize to smaller horseboxes, this is where the RunStar comes into its own.”
He goes on: ”As the vehicle is converted from a standard van it has a low centre of gravity making it very steady to drive. Another plus point is that someone as young as 17 can drive it on an ordinary licence, with no need to take another test.”
Fully converted RunStar Horse Shuttles are available from £12,000 including VAT.
