The Importance of Professional Racehorse Transport

When it comes to racehorse transport, there is a huge amount at stake. Thoroughbreds are not just highly expensive, but also highly strung, that’s why you need to enlist the help of the professionals.

Racehorse owners are the single largest contributors to the funding of British Racing and in 2013 the net expenditure of owners on training fees and horse purchases, including transport, reached over £475 million, as stated by the British Horse Racing Authority. With this in mind, it is the owners upmost priority that their racehorses are transported correctly and are in the safest of hands.

The team at NRT International has extremely high standards when it comes to quality care, safety and comfort for equine transport. Servicing stud works, all major thoroughbred sales in the UK, Ireland and Europe and international racehorse trainers, we offer a highly professional and a well-renowned racehorse transport service.

We are fortunate enough to work with some of the best businesses and top clients in the industry, and with that comes the need to provide the best service possible. Our quality of care and safe environment is approved by the Race Horse Transport Association’s code of conduct and we continue to operate under the guidance of the Vehicle and Operator Service Agency.

To provide an added peace of mind, every member of the team at NRT International carries Level 3 qualifications in equine transport and driver CPC certification. The qualifications ensure the individual understands the legislation and procedures of racehorse transport, they can manage the well-being of the horse throughout the journey, they can demonstrate practical skills in the planning and preparation for transporting a horse, hold practical skills in loading and unloading horses, transport horses safely on the highway and maintain the utmost levels of hygiene.

Every aspect of the our racehorse transport service is of the highest levels of quality, care, safety, comfort and professionalism.

We look forward to working with you to transport your horse(s) nationally, across Europe and around the world.
