Sterling Silver Stables Takes Delivery of New Equine Motorcoach


Sterling Silver Stables Takes Delivery of New Equine Motorcoach

(Maurice, La.) – Equine Motorcoach™ delivered a new Equine Motorcoach to Sterling Silver Stables in Maurice, Louisiana. The equestrian center was founded less than a year ago, but the family who owns it has been involved with horses for 16 years.

The Mosing family opened the doors of their equestrian center in June 2008 and it is rapidly developing into a world-class facility. In addition to finishing construction designed by some of the top international cross country and footing experts, they sponsor top three-day event rider, Will Faudree, and own his advanced level horse, Pawlow.

The Mosings’ two daughters, Kaitlynn and Maddie, ride and compete regularly at horse trials, jumper and dressage shows. The Mosings founded their operation and purchased their Equine Motorcoach as a way to keep the whole family together. They also have two sons who like horses, but prefer other activities.


On their maiden voyage to the Fork Stables Horse Trials in North Carolina, Jennifer and Kirk (mom and dad) traded driving duties while the rest of the family watched movies, played Xbox or slept.  At one point, Jennifer sent a text message that her husband would not let her drive anymore because he said he was having fun driving the Coach.

Bob Wiegand, director of sales and general manager for Equine Motorcoach, made a special trip to a Poplar Place Farm horse trial in Georgia in late September 2008 to show the Coach to the Mosings. Once they finalized their order, the Volvo truck, electronics, plumbing and all other U.S. materials were crated, bundled and shipped overseas to the Lehel manufacturing plant in Hungary for finishing.

Wiegand traveled to Hungary to oversee the electrical and manufacturing process. The new Equine Motorcoach returned to the U.S. and was serviced at Stinnett RV, which is owned by Equine Motorcoach partner, Tom Stinnett. Wiegand then drove the Coach to Louisiana to train and prepare the family for their first trip.



Equine Motorcoach designed and produced many new amenities and features to create an even more user-friendly and functional vehicle. The Volvo truck now has front and rear air, making leveling and traveling in the Coach even easier. The TVs in the bunks and main living area are all configured for the kids to play Xbox with each other or watch their favorite programs together. The individual upper bunks are configured for access through the main living or horse transport area. The divider wall between the bunks was deleted so the kids could share the entire upper berth.

There is a full-size refrigerator/freezer and entertainment center on the exterior of the Coach. A portable grill stows easily and allows Kirk to set up his grill anywhere around the Coach.

The Coach is a perfect fit for the family of six and their horses. The Equine Motorcoach sleeps six and transports six horses. Even after loading all of the show gear, feed, hay, horses, kids, supplies, clothing, food and necessities, the Mosing family had lots of storage space left.

Last we heard, the family was working on their Easter eggs and having a great go with the horses and riders at the horse trials. The family is spending the remainder of their Easter vacation with Will Faudree at Gavilan Farm in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
