Under the Welfare of Animals (Transport) Order 1997 (WATO) we cannot transport any animal unless it is fit for travel. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that their animal is allowed and fit for travel. If your animal is incapable of, or unfit for, travel, in our opinion, we reserve the right to refuse to transport it and you will be charged in accordance to our cancellation policy.  

 

Whilst we have our own insurance in place, you must ensure that your animal is properly insured to travel and also participate in any activities you intend to take part in before and after you arrive at your destination (including public liability for damage to persons/property caused by your animal).    

 

Reasonable wear and tear to our vehicles/trailers is expected and covered in my fee for transportation, but customers will be liable to cover the cost of repair for any excessive damage caused by their animals to the horse transport vehicle.  

 

Any quote for transport will include 45 minutes of loading time free of charge. After this a fee of £10 for every 30 mins will be applied. In the rare case that loading in not achieved you will be charged in accordance to our cancellation policy
