Equine Motorcoach is Returning To Ranch Outlet.

Equine Motorcoach is returning next week to Ranch Outlet in Lafayette, Louisiana, April 2-4, 2012. Ranch Outlet is located at 3324 NE Evangeline Thwy., Lafayette, LA 70507- (337) 234-5015

The all-in-one RV and horse transport made its first appearance at Ranch Outlet in 2008. The first edition Equine Motorcoach manufacturing was completed in Europe. The company's principals moved all the manufacturing jobs to the United States in early 2011.

"The response to this transport vehicle has far exceeded our expectations," said Julie Calzone, Equine Motorcoach co-owner and Lafayette, Louisiana resident. "It's always a risk when you create something new, but our years of hard work and refinement of this product are being rewarded with brisk sales." Calzone is partnered with Tom and Carolyn Stinnett. Tom owns Tom Stinnett Derby City RV, one of the nation's largest independent RV dealers. Tom is the Co-Chair of the GoRVing national promotional campaign and he sits on the Board of Directors of the RVDA, the United States' RV dealers association. He was inducted into the RV Hall of Fame.

"The business works because we all bring unique skills and experience to the process," said Calzone. "We have also fulfilled our goals of building a line of horse transport and RV products that meet a variety of consumer needs. We are totally focused in the horse industry.

Equine Motorcoach is debuting its Equine Transport and Equine Carriage product at the upcoming Rolex Three Day Championship event in Lexington, Kentucky at the Kentucky Horse Park. The event is a prelude to the 2012 London Olympic Games and will showcase some of the world's leading event riders. The line includes a C-Class RV that tows a four horse trailer and a larger truck with living accommodations that tows a 8-10 horse air ride transport that can also include living quarters.

Equine Motorcoach is now on display at the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show in Houston, Texas.

Loving This Pin Oak Horse Show.

There are all kinds of horses here - gaited, hunters, jumpers, Fresians, working horse, Andalusians, park horses, driving horses and so many more. This reminds us of the classic horse shows we grew up with on the East Coast in the US.

The show management has been fantastic and the response to our Equine Motorcoach is overwhelming. It is selling itself and we've sold a few.

We have opened a preview of our new lines of products. You can see what's happening HERE.

We will be at Pin Oak until April 1 and then are headed back to Louisville, KY through Louisiana. Might have to make a stop at the Final Four if we are in the Championship spot.

We are definitely set for Rolex at the end of April at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

Equine Motorcoach On Site at the Gulf Coast Winter Classic Beginning Wednesday - Gulfport, Mississippi

Equine Motorcoach Is Featured At Gulfport Winter Horse Show

(Louisville, Ky.) – Equine Motorcoach™, the all in one motorized, luxury RV and horse transport that just moved its European manufacturing operations to the United States will be on display at the Gulf Coast Winter Classic Horse Show currently underway at the Harrison County Equestrian Center.

Equine Motorcoach is a one of a kind all-in-one RV and horse transport company. The 2012 U.S. version features two, four and six-horse configurations with fully loaded amenities on the interior and exterior. The interior has a spacious full bath, complete kitchen and multiple sleeping accommodations. The horse transport area has air ride suspension and European slant load configuration to provide horses the best possible ride.

“If a horse owner is staying at hotel for a show, generally they are quite a distance from their horses – so they are having to travel back-and-forth,” said Julie Calzone, Equine Motorcoach principal. “Having the RV portion allows you to stay at the horse show, rest between classes, be with your family, and do a night check on your horses. In the morning you can feed your horses, water them, clean the stalls and then go back and have breakfast – all that without having to travel back-and-forth to a hotel.”

The Winter Classic Series is six weeks of United States Equestrian Federation AA Rated hunter and jumper horse classes with two $25,000 Grand Prix Classes, four $35,000 Grand Prix Classes, the USHJA International Hunter Derby and a World Championship Rider Event. Nearly 1,000 horses are stabled on grounds.
