Listing Description

Horses in Motion is a unique, safe horse transportation company that I highly recommend to anyone wishing to travel foals and donkeys up to top class horses. As a pupil of Millfield School travelling my horse around the country to events was never a problem and it wasn’t until term ended that I realised that I no longer had that luxury and I certainly wasn’t going to give up competing. I had heard about Horses in Motion through word of mouth and had been given Steve Mills’ number. Steve was easy to contact and even at short notice was able to take me to weekly events and when term finishes at school he is usually the one who reminds me that I need my horse picking up from school. The horse box itself is compact and my horse at 16.1hh travels very comfortably inside and I have proof as I can watch him from a CCTV camera Steve has installed. Another main aspect that drove me into hiring Steve was the extreme precautions he takes; no job is just a quick pick-up and drop-off.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve. He picked up my 9 month old filly for me, just weaned from her mum so potentially a stressful situation. He was patient, kind and in no hurry to rush my baby onto the lorry. The truck itself is perfect! There was nowhere my baby could hurt herself, no breastbars for her to climb over, a really well thought out (by Steve, I should add!) little wagon. I honestly could not fault Steves driving. My baby travelled perfectly and I was able to keep an eye on her via the camera in the cab. On her arrival at our destination, in true baby fashion, baby horse decided she would rather stay on the lorry! Again Steve was in no hurry, allowed her time to have a look and check out her new home from the safety of the truck! I would recommend Steve 100% and will definitely use him again.

First time using a horse transporter so very apprehensive. Steve was very efficient and quickly put my mind at ease. Our new pony was collected from Oxford on time and once loaded an approximate arrival time was given. He then gave a more accurate arrival 1hr prior. Our new pony arrived in Yorkshire relaxed, dry and stress free! Would definitely use Steve again would describe him as reliable, honest and maintains high standards of care. Many, many thanks.

I have used Steve before and wouldn’t hesitate to use him again or recommend him.
He has a calm reassuring manner, very professional approach with the animals and considerate driving attitude.

Have used Steve twice, once for a newly retired racehorse, the other time a highly strung warmblood who had to travel 150 miles. Cool, calm, collected horses arrived both times.
