We have made transporting horses a practical science

When you entrust one or maybe several horses to our care, you can be sure that trained and certified horse specialists will be involved in the transport of your animals. Through decades of practical experience, we have developed managing the complexities of transport, ensuring the individual handling of your horses, taking care of all the formalities and providing first-class transport facilities into a science, and it is this that forms the basis for our sustained success as a horse transport business.

The ideal vehicle fleet for transporting your horses

For most long-distance, complex horse transports, we use horse boxes that are custom-built for us on truck chassis supplied by MAN. These offer the highest travelling comfort for your horses. In some cases, special conditions - such as space restrictions at smaller stables - prevent the use of full-size transport vehicles. In these cases we use horse trailers from Böckmann. As these are extra-wide, they also ensure stress-free travel for your horse.

Our love of the animals is the basis for our success

Making your horse feel comfortable and at ease throughout the journey is the most essential precondition for ensuring that it can perform at its best. If you, as the rider, are to get the best out of your horse at an away competition following a lengthy journey, you need the transport of your mount to be handled by an absolute professional.
