…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Roush Horse Trainer?

Roush Horse Trainer

Today’s Tuner Tuesday mobile is a bit…different.

Featuring 2.4 liters of five-cylinder Volvo horsepower in the back, it has just one horsepower in the front, but that’s all that it needs to get the job done.

See, this specialty vehicle, build by Roush Technologies (yes, the Roush Technologies) was developed for Kurt Systems, a Turkish racehorse and camel training equipment company, and was designed to let a driver, veterinarian and trainer ride comfortably behind the business end of their horse at full gallop speed while constantly monitoring its vitals from inside of a nicely appointed cabin.

Ready to talk accessories?

How about a silicone saddle that simulates jockey weighs, electronically controlled reins to steer the horse in the same direction as the vehicle, and exterior lights of nighttime runs.

Though no pricing has been announced yet, expect it so roll out soon to a barn near you.
