To Convert or Not to Convert, That is the Equestrian!

New Zealand Horsebox conversion experts European Horse Trucks have once again worked their magic on a 420bhp, GT, ex curtain-sider.

Recently appointed Regional Sales Executive, Adam Foy, provided the FH back in October 2021, removing the original body beforehand.

The actual conversion process happens right here in the UK, thanks to a few hand-picked, highly skilled coach builders. This is due to long waiting lists which can reach over three years! in New Zealand. Another reason why the UK is a great place to carry out conversions is the number of quality chassis units available.

The horsebox in question is a fifteen-ton unit with a four-horse capacity and can accommodate up to six people. It features two hydraulically-powered slideout areas to help provide more room for the living room and shower area. With the latest owner being over six feet tall, it was important for the cabin to be comfortable and accommodating, hence the interior being specifically designed to allow for extra headroom. The day bed was also replaced with two extra seats, allowing the owner’s family to travel in style!

A full bathroom plus an onboard generator means this family can set up and relax without the need for electronic hook-ups or on-site facilities, perfect for those middle-of-the-field expeditions!

A luxurious, adventure-ready unit with enough gadgets and comfort fit for any horse riding enthusiast, we aren’t expecting any long faces whilst aboard, but hopefully, this truck won’t be around furlong enough to notice!

That’s it, no more puns this month…
