January's prize draw is now on.

We are offering one lucky person the chance to win a bundle from Bailey's Horse Feeds. The bundle includes a limited edition lead rein, a pouch of tasty treats, plus a £10 feed voucher. Also this month there is a special prize of a full size "Horse Transport Network" saddle cloth, kindly donated by GG's base layers.

To be in with a chance to win, simply ask for your horse transport quote through the website.

Bailey's experts offer some excellent travel advice for feeding

Travelling can take it out of a horse, especially those who find the experience stressful. It's important , therefore to reduce the chances of it becoming stressful as well as the effects of the journey itself. Try sticking to your horses' normal routine, including mealtimes, as much as possible before a journey and try to ensure that a minimum of an hour or so has passed since their last feed before travelling.

Maintaining fibre intake is important for gut health, so even ponies who are "on a diet" should be allowed access to a haynet on the journey. Feeding soaked hay or haylage will provide

additional moisture and play some part in helping keep the pony hydrated too as well as keeping dust levels to a minimum in the confined space of box or trailer.

Indeed, dehydration can be a big problem on longer journeys so offer drinking water as frequently as possible. Electrolytes in water or a soaked feed, such as Keep Calm or Speedi-Beet given before or after will help rehydration as long as plenty of fresh drinking water is offered too.

Horses that find travelling and competing stressful may lose valuable hindgut bacteria as they pass droppings more frequently. Giving a prebiotic supplement before, on the day of and after a journey or competition, will support the beneficial gut bacteria and help their numbers recover.

At the end of a long journey, or day competing your pony still needs essential nutrients to aid his recovery from the exertions of the day. Even if you wish to cut back his calorie intake in anticipation of a couple of quiet days, feed a balancer to provide quality protein for tissue repair, as well as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to replenish reserves and support recovery.

1st January 2018

Congratulations to Rachel Dye who is our first prize draw winner for December!

1st December 2017

December's prize draw is now on!

V-Bandz have kindly sponsored the December draw for Horse Transport Network. To claim your prize please reply to the confirmation email you receive when you ask for a quote and name the horse transporter you have booked.

The lucky winner will receive a Combi-Brite Mesh Quarter Sheet!


This lightweight sheet is a real statement piece when it comes to safety on the roads. Apart from something on the riders body a rug is the most important item of safety that can be used on the roads. The size of the horse's quarters means that this big expanse of colour really stands out to the road users coming up to you from behind.

The mesh sheet can be used all year round even in the height of summer. It will not make the horse sweat up. It attaches to the saddle and the girth which means it cannot slip backwards or twist in use. The filet string and elastic under the tail flap means it cannot blow around even in a strong wind.

Combining the high viz colour has proved very popular with riders as it gives you the maximum opportunity to stand out against different backgrounds at all times of year.

For more amazing horse and dog hi-viz products visit www.v-bandz.co.uk .

To enter this months draw simply ask for a quote at " Get Me Quotes " and when you have booked your transporter reply to your confirmation email with the name of the transporter you have booked.

"...a great site I've used often - especially for my brood mares to go off to studs and long journeys - every person I've used has been professional, reliable and done a great job - it's saved a lot of time and money!"


"...used this site for a journey from Berkshire to Lancashire and was quoted a great price from a transporter who needed to fill an empty box on a return journey. Highly recommend!"
