We cover the world, from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and beyond. From racing to polo, Shetlands to Shires, to the world’s biggest equestrian display teams and multi-million dollar equine athletes; Equitrans keeps the horse industry moving.
We are long-term members of the Animal Transport Association (ATA), the International Pets and Animals Transport Association, (IPATA) and active members in the development and improvement of animal and horse welfare across various organisations including agencies, airlines and airport handling companies.
What we do
The Equitrans global personalised stable to stable service allows our clients complete peace of mind, when it comes to international horse transport. Our in-house team is experienced in the coordination of all aspects of horse shipping management, from documentation and quarantine to veterinary procedures and flight planning, while our experienced travelling grooms, vets and representatives monitor and care for your horse throughout every step of the journey.
Over the years, Equitrans has been the trusted partner for several pioneering ‘firsts’ in national horse shipping protocols, and we have been instrumental in the establishment of SOP’s for numerous new airlines and routes. We have overseen the establishment of unique temporary quarantine solutions, coordinated large consignment charter-flights to some of the world’s most remote destinations and discreetly handled many highly exclusive VIP movements.
At Equitrans, our mission is to continue meeting the exacting demands and exceeding the expectations of the equine industry to maintain our reputation as the best in the horse transport sector.
We harness our passion and experience with the newest technology to create a reliable, simple, safe, global transport solution for horses and other animals.
Our unique global transport service offers a professional, safe, cost effective, stable to stable solution, with a focus on animal welfare and safety.
Regardless of whether we are relocating a solo horse for a gentle retirement, or tens of horses for some of the globe’s most prestigious races, competitions or events; each horse is important to us. We remain entirely focused on offering a safe, efficient and cost-effective horse shipping solution, which in turn, maintains our position as the world’s first choice when it comes to the transport of horses and other animals.
