One of the very first Gift Sets was the Land-Rover and Horse Box. It was originally the green Series One with the red Rice Pony Pony Trailer, then they changed to the Series 2 Land-Rover and the colour changed to cream and tan. Now we have a new Horse Box and a change to blue and white. This Horse Box though does not become available as a single item until the following year.

There should be a mare and foal to go in the Horse Box. However the Horse Box is a bit more interesting than the previous version in that it has a front exit for the horses and a swivel on the central partition to let them both come out the same side.

 

The models which made up the Land-Rover & Horse Box Gift Set - GS15 were:

  •  438 Land-Rover 109" Truck Cab

  •  112 Beaufort Double Horse Box

  •  Mare & Foal

This revision of the Land-Rover and Horse Box set was in 1968 it is always blue and white however you will find it with spun hubs, cast hubs or with Whizzwheels, or with a mixture. I don't think the trailer ever got spun hubs but the Land-Rover certainly did. Whizzwheels versions are worth significantly less. I have also seen it with the Pony Club stickers on the Land-Rover doors
