We offer a bespoke professional, reliable and personal service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our show service includes the full use of the truck facility for the duration of the show; we can also help with a grooming service, tacking up, and assistance in the practice arena.
Please contact us by phone or e-mail, and we will be happy to quote for your requirements.
We use a State-of -the Art, 2-Stall Theault Lorry; fully inspected and approved by the Dept. of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
The lorry is clean, smart, well maintained and disinfected after every journey. We can carry 2 horses up to 17.2 HH; stalls are padded and floor is non-slip for total comfort and safety.
Loading is usually achieved very easily but we are aware that some horses are notoriously bad loaders; however, using a patient and persistent approach, gentle and stress free, loading can be achieved, particularly with the benefit of our low ramp. We do recommend that horses which may not have travelled before be made familiar with a horse lorry.
Due to European Regulations, all horses must travel with their passport.
It is recommended that horses should travel with their travel boots and tail bandages. We have facilities to carry, rugs,bridles, saddles, and any other necessary tack.
We carry feed and water for the whole journey, and for long journeys (more than 8 hours) we carry contingency feed/water.
