Well, that's just the most exciting thing I've heard all day. If there's one thing that I desperately need random, unimportant news about, it's a lady with huge ta-ta's and sparkly outfits.

She's a [or is it ex?] glamour model from England. She's had a breast reduction or two and is now riding dressage.

I say, good for her. I don't really understand why so many people hate her. I'm not saying we should all like her, but I personally don't see what's wrong with her buying a nice horse and a custom van.

I don't hate her ;) I just think her van is ugly and funny. :lol: Didn't she do nude pics that. She was a porn model right?? I really don't care, its her life she can do what she wants. I'd love to have a nice expensive horsie like that :winkgrin:

To be fair, she does have an image to keep up. She's unlikely to be widely accepted in the sometimes snooty horse world anyway (pretty sure she wasn't allowed into a polo match that she bought tickets in advance for, snooty people). So she can show up on her own terms in a bright pink van and beat people to the punch = ) I don't dislike her, I just think she's rushing through dressage a bit faster than her skills can keep up with, which is unfortunate for her very nice horses. Last I heard though, she was working several times a week with a top trainer, so she's likely to have improved a good bit since we last saw her riding videos.

That sure is Pepto-Bismol pink though! Yikes!

By the way it is "Katie" price, not "Katy", but yes she is a model and singer in England. She has a few hits on the radio here in the states too. Kinda like the Paris Hilton of the US for them, always in the tabloids, everyone having to know what she's doing.

I really could care less also, and think the van is the most atrocious thing I've ever seen!

Honestly, I would love to have a truck and trailer right now and if she wanted to hand me the Pepto-Bismol mobile, I would thank her profusely and drive pinkly off into the sunset.

I really do not get the big deal here. People seem to have a problem with everything people do. I'm sure she takes wonderful care of her horses and I don't think that they care about the pink trailer, so who cares. I wish I could afford a horse like that. Good for her!

Don't you mean live down? :lol: I have nothing against her, but she seems to be reviled quite a bit on the celeb gossip blogs for her behavior.

I do think her horse is lovely. More power to her equestrian ambitions.

OT: Why don't we have horse boxes in the U.S.? They look like they'd be easier to drive? Are they? Anyone ever driven one?

Please excuse her while she does counter canter, two tempis, and ones in the spookiest possible situation with multiple horses going, multi colored lights flashing, music blasting, and people whooping and hollering:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SU_hLr3llQ

The remarkable improvement a few months later from her earlier video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAyEnZqzkqs) is evident and commendable.

I don't care how much money she spent, there are plenty of people who wouldn't canter in that arena on the QH they have been learning first level on for ten years.

Because in the UK they don't use pick-up trucks, so a horsebox is a good investment.

In North America, we use pick ups for everything, so buying a $40k truck and then a $50k horsebox doesn't make much sense.

They are however, amazing. Much nicer to drive, and most have living quarters. People hide out in them between classes while it's raining and watch tv and what not. The horses have a much better ride up there too.

I'd take the horse box, too. For as much as I love the color pink (I even force my chestnut mare to wear it ;) ), it IS a wee bit *loud*. Though considering I don't even have a truck or trailer right now, I would be MOST grateful to have it! And my mares would be pretty princesses inside that box, thank you very much. Forget Barbie...it would be "My Pretty Pony" with glitter and everything. :lol:

FancyFree, we've got them here, just not as many. VERY hard to find decent low mileage ones...or ones that started out as a horse van and wasn't rebuilt from old parts. I've been looking for 6 months now, and have a handful of different dealers on the lookout for one for me. All have told me they hope I'm able to wait a year or longer. *sigh*
This is the type I'm waiting for:
http://img.alibaba.com/photo/11082816/Horse_Van_Car.jpg
Runs between $30k-$36k depending on extras for that size. Less if used. Like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
If it didn't cost so much to import and the extra to have one done with the driver's side on the left as opposed to the right I would have ordered one from overseas. Found them brand new for sale there for as low as $30k US for a 2 horse, w/tack and no living quarters.
When/if we ever find one...I'll be trading in my pick up for it. Love my pick up...but love horse vans more. I can still pick up hay in a horse van...heck I can pick up hay on rainy days in a horse van without worrying about tying down tarps. And can load a lot of hay in one.
They are much easier and nicer to drive than a truck and trailer. *Much.* The ride is easier on the horses too...I've been in the back of both while travelling. I grew up using an older than dirt horse van...it was fantastic.
FWIW, my pick up truck was $36,500 and a new 2 horse runs about $15k so the prices run about the same but with a horse van for the same price range you can add more horse capacity or living quarters. :winkgrin:

I don't think I'd want a hot pink one, but they can be painted. Although that pink one is bigger than I'd want.

Why is her name sometimes Jordan and sometimes Katie?

Thanks Equibrit, Frank Dibella is one of the dealers on the lookout for me. I don't want a huge horse can. All of his newer ones are 6 horse or bigger. I want a small 2-3 horse.

Just out of curiousity, what would be considered too high of mileage on one of those vans if one was to buy? MB has gotten me thinking and reconsidering my options for when I decide to buy horse transportation. I think they're awesome and would absolutely get one instead of a pickup, even though I've been wanting a pickup truck for a long time.

MB I love the van pic you posted. So cute. I want one. They look like they would be so much easier to drive. I didn't trailer that much but when I did it was high anxiety backing up and parking. The horse van would probably be like driving an RV, not too bad.

ETA: Wow KP's is nice! The inside is gorgeous. I might be able to live with pink if someone happened to give it to me. :lol:

MB - the kind that you want requires a van with front wheel drive (no drive shaft to rear wheels) and they are not too common for hauling big loads. I don't think I'd like the instability of hauling a top heavy load in a vehicle like that.

Look here; http://www.horseboxes.com/non-hgv-stock.php

I think there may be a lot of these British units being sold, as the Gubmint is trying to impose really daft rules on the driving of these vehicles http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/news/397/282300.html

MistyBlue
Sep. 3, 2009, 07:49 PM
Equibrit, the front wheel drive does bother me. I've been looking into them and finding one AWD or 4WD isn't happening. The few that are have been the taller larger models and I don't want the added height. I just wouldn't park it in a muddy area.
However the front wheel drive ones here can be counter weighted on the bottom of the rear container, and anti-sway system can be added for ones made to order. Land Rover has the same system, it works pretty well. Hydraulics on computer sensors move weights with the vehicle's movement to keep sway down. But...it's pricey.
Since I doubt I'll find one...it'll be tough to test one out.

see u at x, so far the ones I've found that were newer had 6 figure mileage on them. A whole lot of mileage for a newer vehicle. Oddly enough, the older model ones have less mileage compared to their age. The mileage thing holds me back on other ones because, well, it's just a mindset I have. I have a hard time justifying trading in an F250 with less than 14,000 miles on it for something with 80,000 miles on it. Plus I don't want to trade in a paid off truck (will be paid off soon, before we find anything else) for something that may need a new everything soon. Unfortunately I don't have a mechanically inclined person at home, so any simple repairs would have to be done in a shop and would cost me a fortune. But if I had a spouse or close relative nearby who was a mechanic I wouldn't hesitate. :winkgrin: I figure mileage by how many years old the vehicle is by how many miles are on it. I like to see 10k-12k miles per year for my own personal comfort. That's on the high side for a van considering nobody is commuting to work or grocery shopping in one. :lol: But that's a workable number for me.

roki, aren't some of those older ones adorable? I almost want to get one and then paint it all psychedelic. :D

FancyFree...I hate driving a truck and trailer. Especially in my town/area. Very narrow winding roads without shoulders and nobody ever stays on thier own side of the road. :eek: Plus many of the best trail heads around here do not have room to pull in and park a truck and trailer. Not to mention my driveway isn't the greatest for getting a truck and trailer in and out of coming off the narrow road into a hard 90 degree angle onto a one lane driveway...there's an outcrop of ledge across the street from my drive and the driveway has ledge on the left dropping down 25' and ledge on the right sharp incline up 15'. Zero room for error. I've driven a few horse vans and they're like driving a really huge SUV more than like an RV. Unless it's a large horse van, then it's just like an RV I'd think, but I've never driven an RV. Very simple to drive, just a little extra length and height so no drive throughs and taking corners a tad wide, but not over the lane wide.

Dress Art...love the fact that it's got rear doors and a side door. And a very low way in, step up in back and ramp on side.

Lol. They are called Horse boxes or Horse lorries. When we moved here we sold our one in good condition for 3000 pounds, they are not all expensive. They are also good because you can sleep and cook in them for sleep away shows. The few people who go to hotels are the ones with trailer, all of them no bigger than this http://www.horsetrailersales.co.uk/IforWilliamsIndex.htm
even then they use tents. Also, no one really uses transport companies because things are closer so I suppose it makes more sense to have one!
p.s a lot of them are colourful! Maybe not quite that glitzy

That last link Equibrit posted, horseboxes, had some really nice ones on there. Great prices too! And nice colors, all different colors and some with graphics.
Although I like the color on this one, I can't figure what they were going for with the graphic on it:
http://www.horseboxes.com/upload/hgvstock/blue%20lorry110153808.jpg
Am I looking at it wrong or is that one big fat jiggly looking horse with a huge neck?

I'd love one like this one for $22,700 US:
http://www.horseboxes.com/upload/hgvstock/blue167442016.JPG

And this one...has 3 stalls and full luxury living quarters for $61,500 US:
http://www.horseboxes.com/upload/hgvstock/4065%2057109375.JPG
Here in the states a gooseneck trailer with 3 stalls and living quarters goes for the same amount. But that's only a trailer, it still needs something with a big engine to tow it. UK prices are a llot cheaper than here for these typs of vehicles.

Equibrit
Sep. 3, 2009, 11:22 PM
The biggest reason those horse boxes are more popular in the UK is because a gooseneck type of articulated trailer and pickup truck is not legal there. It's tiny trailers or horse boxes.

Horse trucks are common here.When you go to a show there are millions of $ worth of trucks in the carpark.It cracks me up when a huge gin palace turns up and all you can see is a wisp of hair above the steering wheel. Then they unload the one horse from the eight horse box and get changed in the living compartment that can sleep twelve.
