Train Your Horse
Updated with larger pictures:
What's covering his nose? I wonder what they are measuring?
From the website:
Roush Technologies has just completed a groundbreaking bespoke vehicle project for Turkish-based, Kurt Systems – a world leader in racehorse and camel training equipment. The ground-up, turnkey project involved the design, development and build of a highly complex mobile race trainer which enables continuous monitoring of the animal at speeds of up to 60kph.
The striking and unusual looking machine incorporates a number of innovative and unique vehicle systems, as well as a diesel engine, automatic transmission and aspacious luxury cabin for a crew of three. Weighing in at around 4 tons, the vehicle effectively provides a moving enclosure similar to a starting stall, in which the animal can walk, trot or full gallop freely in a controlled environment, whilst being monitored and trained to optimize race performance.
I would love to hear from you - what type of unique horse trailers have you found in your travels? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Include pictures of the trailer if possible. I am looking for new, old, bad, outstanding, strange locations or strange cargo for trailers. Anything out of the ordinary.
