Horses for courses says Biglorryblog

And the choice for Team Renwick is a latest luxury specification horsebox – a Euro-6 DAF CF 440 FAR 6×2 rigid with bespoke, seven-horse-capacity bodywork by KM Horseboxes. The top-of-the range DAF / KM combination is equipped with full air-suspension and a ‘fully-loaded’ cab and bodywork specification – resulting in a £300,000 investment for the Essex show jumping team. says John Renwick, team manager and Laura’s husband “ Full air suspension provides exceptional ride comfort for our horses – we arrive at destinations with our horses calm and unruffled, and that’s very important.”

“The truck appears extremely economical on fuel, too” added Renwick, “with barely a quarter tank of fuel used after two return trips to Belgium. In any case, it’s noticeably more economical than our last truck.” Power comes via a 10.8 litre PACCAR MX-11 engine producing 435bhp and driven through a 12-speed manual gearbox. A high-spec Day cab is fully integrated into the coachwork to provide access into living quarters. The seven-horse-capacity horsebox coachwork is built on a 5.9m wheelbase DAF CF chassis and is one of KM Horseboxes highest-spec body options. Hand-built to exacting quality standards, equipment includes sleeping accommodation for six people and three additional pop-outs for bathroom and shower-room facilities. An on-board generator powers air-conditioning, freezer and various infotainment equipment, plus independent fans for horse compartments.
