Camels are very tall and have either one hump or two, depending
on the variety, but all have large feet, a goose neck and a few
other distinguishing features.
Horses are quite tall, but not as tall as camels. They have no
humps and their feet are quite small. They have other differences
course, but some are not relevant to our purpose here.
The Camelverter kit will substantially convert any horse into that
of a camel.
The saddle is the main part of the conversion, and contains under
its raised profile two padded humps, which fit comfortably against
the horse's back. These humps can be used as extra storage to
hold a variety of materials, like additional water for example.
Inflating the humps raises them even higher, but decreases
The over-shoes are next. These are held in place by simple ankle
straps. They enable the horse to traverse soft sand in essentially
the same way
as that of a camel.
Riding a Camelverted horse simply requires a modified technique,
by adopting a much higher position, with longer reins and
more ambling gait.
The inevitable delux version comes with an enhanced head
harness, which features nostril, and eye flaps, that can be closed
over in the event of a sand storm, mimicking the camel's natural
ability to shield itself from the effects of blowing sand.
Camelverter is particularly useful for those who like to travel
around assuming a lofty stance, but also be able to cross
shifting desert sands with impunity.
