About East Coast Horse Transport

East Coast Horse Transport is completely Australian owned and operated. We have been in the business of horse transport since 1995 and are still going strong! We have a reputation for being safe and reliable horse transporters, thanks to our loyal customers – and we are known for our ability to care for horses and keep them calm and happy throughout their journey.

Our horse transport drivers know how important it is to have great animal handling skills, and through their years of experience riding and caring for horses, they do a fantastic job at soothing the horses during horse transport.

If you choose us for your horse transport, you can call any time during their transit to check how they’re going, so you’re not left worrying. During overnight stopovers at our regular depots, the horses are treated with high-grade Lucerne hay and plenty of water. If need be, you can provide a rug for your horse to accompany it through its travels.

You can trust East Coast Horse Transport with your horses. Contact us today!

Our Horse Transport Fleet

Our horse transport fleet of vehicles is made up of three trucks – a 6-horse, 7-horse, and 9-horse truck. They have a number of features to make the horse transport more comfortable – spacious padded bays which suit all sizes of horses or ponies, cameras to ensure the horses are safe and calm at all times, the ability for horses to travel with rugs and boots, bays for foals and mares, stallion dividers and rubber floor mats with shavings. We accommodate for a small amount of tack to accompany each horse, but that said, no responsibility will be taken by us for any loss or damage of saddlery during horse transport. Whatever your horse transport needs are, we’ve got them covered.
