Katie Price's Pink Horsebox revealed
A Lancashire firm spent two months custom building a Â£120,000 horsebox inspired by the brand ‘Barbie’. Prestige Horseboxes in Hesketh Bank were the company in charge of building the horsebox. The horsebox will sleep four people where two people can have the luxury of sleeping in a double bed, the horsebox is also fitted with a state of the art kitchen and a luxury en-suite bathroom. The sofas and cushions are specially dyed to match the
pink exterior paintwork. Katie Price’s metallic silver logo is embellished onto the exterior as well as some of the cushions inside the box.
Prestige Horseboxes do provide horseboxes to the wealthy and they are used to making custom made boxes, however Katie Price is their biggest celebrity customer to date. Katie apparently saw the company when they were exhibiting at The British Open (a
showjumping show in England) and asked them to meet her to discuss her requirements. General Manager, David Beckett personally delivered the horsebox to Katie Price’s Brighton home.
David said “Katie was great to work with. She knows what she wants and is prepared to pay for it, which is really good and makes it easy to work with. We dropped it off for her in Brighton…and she absolutely loved it. It was a lot better than she had expected. She changed her fashion shoot to do it inside. She is the most down-to-earth person you will ever meet.”
The horsebox took 9 weeks in total to build for Katie Price and all of this was top secret and so was done behind closed doors. Katie was quick to test drive her horsebox around her local area and show off her new purchase to the press. She was photographed looking moody rather than excited and happy. This may be due to the messy divorce that she is currently going through with her estranged husband Peter Andre. However Katie has apparently already hooked up with a new man, Alex Reid. The couple are now meant to be inseparable. Katie Price and Alex Reid went to the New Forest in the horsebox for a couple of days. Instead of the trip being a success it was full of dramas. As the horsebox is not exactly discreet she stood out wherever she went. At one stage Katie and Alex were stuck at a dead end and turning the giant horsebox around proved to be a big problem. Price is excused of shouting at a fan that was asking for an autograph, telling her to move out of the way or she’ll run her over. Jordan’s spokesperson has denied the incident but has admitted to Reid and Price holidaying in the New Forest.
After your home, a horse box could easily be one of the most expensive purchases you make. You insure you home, your car and even your possessions so it makes sense to make sure that you insure your horsebox.
