Horsebox manufacturers Whittaker Coachbuilders is celebrating its 20th birthday this year.
The Nottinghamshire-based company was launched by Jayne Whittaker and her late husband Yan in 1992, working from a barn at their home.
“Yan decided to start building horseboxes after he bought me a horse for Valentine’s Day and we discovered a gap in the horsebox market at the luxury end,” Jayne said.
In 1996 Jayne and Yan moved to a larger business premises at Gamston Airfield, near Newark where they expanded their team.
“In 2007 Yan was involved in a fatal car accident but I knew we had to continue with the business in his memory,” Jayne added.
“We are delighted to be celebrating our 20th birthday. It is a huge milestone and coincides with 2012 being such an important year for equestrian sport in the UK.”
Each of Whittaker Coachbuilders’ horseboxes are built to order with customers able to specify what they want around a standard frame.
