Nad Al Sheba Stables choose Whittaker Coachbuilders International
The team at Nottinghamshire-based Whittaker Coachbuilders were proud to recently handover a bespoke custom-made horsebox to the Crown Prince of Dubai. Leaving the UK, for the Middle East, the luxury coach built horsebox was made to the Prince’s specification to carry nine horses and include the height of luxury in the living area measuring just five feet long.
His Highness Prince Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum was on hand to receive the horsebox at the Nad Al Sheba Stables. With the ultimate in style and built from the latest high-tech materials the horsebox will be used to transport the Prince’s endurance horses to competitions and races.
“We supplied a six horsebox to the Crown Prince of Dubai’s stables in Newmarket last year and were delighted when we were contacted about designing and building a bespoke coach that would be used in Dubai,” said Director of Whittaker Coachbuilders, Jayne Whittaker.
“With nine horses to carry this left only a small amount of space for the living quarters but we took up the challenge to make sure all the latest technology, fixtures and fittings were included for the Prince.
“Walnut high gloss units, leather upholstery, a flat screen television, chrome lighting, fridge and combination oven, as well the very important air conditioning unit were all included in the smaller than usual area, but it looked fantastic when it was complete.
“The horsebox was then finished with the very latest body wrap graphics of the Prince riding in the dusk, which provides a stunning look for this very special coach.
“Travelling out to Dubai to handover the horsebox is very much one of the highlights of our 21 years in business and something I will remember for a very long time,” added Jayne.
