MOTIVATION BEHIND OUR HORSE TRAILERS
WHY WE BUILD MAGGIE AND WINSTON
We were recently asked where we got our motivation for creating our event horse trailers. To answer this I’ll need to explain a little background info. We own a marketing agency that works with Cities and Municipalities to create citizen communication programs and promote economic development. Part of what we do is organize and promote corporate and City events.
In the last couple of years, I have noticed a huge increase in the number of mobile photo booths and bar trailers at the events I have been working. I am also from England (a proud Brummie), and horse trailer bars and photo booths have been trending there since around 2012. A quick google search reveals a growing trend beginning to take place here in the USA.
Having worked and become friends with a huge amount of vendors at the events we promote, we have gained knowledge and experience about what works and what doesn’t. Using what we have learned, we feel we can compete with the best, have fun and make new friends.
SOME OF OUR FAVORITE BRITISH EVENT HORSE TRAILERS
The Swig & Filly, The Gin Tin and The Vintage Horse Box Bar were major motivations in our efforts to create a very special experience with our own event horse trailers. Known as “horse boxes” in England, most conversions use a classic Rice trailer (the brand, not the steamed or fried stuff from a Chinese restaurant). Unfortunately, Rice trailers are no longer made and trying to find one anywhere near Texas was like looking for Waldo. So we recreated the look of the aforementioned motivators with the classic and vintage trailers we found here. We love them. And we are not alone. A quick search of google (moblehorsebar) or instagram (#mobilebar) brings up tons of fantastic horse trailer conversions.
