It's a big deal, transporting precious horses, finding the right people. Who can we get to take us? Amy worried. Her friend Rowan was quick to recommend DEFRA approved A and L Grant Horse Transport from Bramley Grange, Grewelthorpe, North Yorkshire and so arrangements were made.
Amy says, 'Thanks to Rowan we had a great transporter. Andy was really good with Honey when she was slightly reluctant to load. He's a very patient guy who knows exactly what he's doing with horses. He's travelled the world transporting them. He's a horseman, as well as an experienced and accomplished driver. I was very happy with the way he handled Honey and way he drove us. Andy drives to suit the horse.'

The horse box is top spec. Andy designed it himself with the comfort and safety of the horse in mind. The transporter holds three horses of around 550kgs, or two mares with foals, or four yearlings.

If any of us are looking to use horse transport in the future this is the company we would definitely call. Andy is punctual, friendly and, in the words of Amy, 'highly amusing' :-) It's good to know your precious cargo is in such safe hands.
