Best of breed
From a young age, plaasmeisie Charne had a deep-seated love of horses. Copeland Stables is the culmination of her lifelong passion and an exciting challenge for this ambitious entrepreneur. From a single stallion, her herd has grown to seven majestic Friesians.
Whether she’s ferrying her kids to the family farm or towing a prize Friesian stallion to a show, Charné needs a vehicle that’s safe and dependable in all conditions. Since she bought her first C-Class in 2000, she has always been a devoted admirer of the Mercedes-Benz brand, and the Vito completely exceeded her expectations.
With a drive system that perfectly balances power and fuel economy, the Vito can handle any load, even prize Friesians like Jasper and Xerxes.
Beauty in motion
A big reason why Charné loves the Vito is its premium styling; an elegant way to transport her prize horses.
More than Mom’s taxi
Charné leads a multifaceted life. Whether she’s racing to the clinic, doing the school run or transporting her horses across the country, the Vito does it all in style and comfort.
