Ellie A. on EQ Horseboxes
Brand Ambassador Ellie talks about her new EQ Horsebox, horses, studies and making the most of lockdown.
Ellie is the lucky owner of the gorgeous Scotia Grey EQ Horsebox. The 2020 build is on an automatic 18T chassis, takes 5 large horses and sleeps 6 people.
She combines competing her three horses around her degree course and also has a homebred 2-year-old out of her former Grade A mare. She credits some excellent training , when she took the (then) five-year-old, Donny to Spain for the sunshine tour.
Ellie keeps her horses at her family home – where her lorry has come in rather handy as a self-contained study centre during lockdown. “It’s too nice not to be used,” she says and has also used this time to create some smart storage solutions for her horsebox, so everything which lives on board is kept tidy, clean and protected.
She describes her new EQ lorry as “a dream.” “I still can’t quite believe that it's ours!” she exclaims. Since having their beautiful new lorry it’s made Ellie and her mum desperate to get to some stay-away shows. “The lorry is so practical with a huge horse area and so much locker space that we will be able to go abroad for one of the tours and have enough space for our three horses and everything we need for a number of weeks,” she explains. “It’s all clean and ready to go!” Let’s hope the pandemic doesn’t keep them away for too much longer.
