Click here to Read About Us
My name is Stephen Gardner and I own and run Eastelms Equestrian Services. I live at the family home in Uggeshall and run a breaking and training yard, as well as offering equine rug wash and repairs and we are now diversifying into running a busy Equine Transport & Self Drive Company. 

I come from a family who all ride and I have ridden since the age of 4. I joined the Waveney Harriers Pony Club at a very early age and quickly became a member of their teams. 

I then started to follow the affiliated ‘showjumping’ road and gained rides on good ponies and then quickly progressing onto horses. I chose to follow a career in horses upon leaving school. 

Due to my experience I was offered a placement at the prolific Brendon Stud in Sussex, the stud has long been established as a well-known producer and seller of competition horses, though specialising in show jumpers for over 40 years. I had the chance to ride some of the best breeding stallions in Europe as well as being a part of the breaking and schooling of the youngsters bred by the stud. 

From there I was then offered the role as ‘Stable Jockey’ for Tim Stockdale and then working at large yards in Belgium and Holland. I returned home in 2010 to set up my own yard. 

During my career I have transported horses all over the UK and Europe. I am a DEFRA approved type 1 horse transporter and hold the BHEST level 3 advanced certificate in equine transport. 

I understand how important your horse is to you. When using our transport service you can be sure that your horse is in capable, experienced, caring and professional hands and that our horseboxes are of the highest standards of safety and comfort for your horse. 

I am available to talk through your requirements at any time or to answer any questions you may have, so please do not hesitate to contact me

We operate two 2 horse lorries, so we are usually able to fulfil travel needs at very short notice. Both lorries have plenty of space to carry tack and rugs so are ideal if you need to book us for shows or other outings.

  • What information do we know about our transport companies?
  • Understanding the legislation regarding animal transport

Our transport companies have provided us with:

  • EU Animal Transporter Approval [either T1 or T2]
  • Operator Licence No. (lorries under 3.5T do not require an Operator's Licence).
  • CET/ACET/ Certificate of Competence (Ireland).

Transport companies must carry their authorisations at all times, and should show you these on request.

In order to legally operate an animal transport business, a transport company must meet the following requirements:

arrowEU Animal Transporter Approval

This is provided by the regulatory authority in the country where the company is registered eg. in the UK approval is by DEFRA, in Ireland approval is by the DOA.n and in other EU countries the approval will come from their regulatory authority. There are two types of approval:


  • T1 Authorisation — where horses are transported on journeys less than 8 hours in duration

  • T2 Authorisation, where horses are transported on long journeys (in excess of 8 hours].  

arrowVehicle Approval (required with T2 Authorisation

 Vehicles used for the transport of animals on long journeys must be inspected and approved.  The lorry will carry a plate to show that it has been approved.

arrowCET / ACET / Certificate of Competence

This must be held by either the attendant or the driver. There must be one certified person travelling with the lorry.
A CET covers transport over 65 kms but not exceeding 8 hours (short journey)
An ACET covers over 8 hours (long journey).  

arrowOperator Licence (lorries under 3.5T do not require an Operator's Licence).

 

What are your responsibilities?

arrowHorse Passport

You must ensure that your horse has a passport. It is illegal for your horse to travel without one. Your transporter will not take your horse without one - but you may be charged if a transporter arrives to collect your horse and then finds that there is no passport.

arrowYour horse is insured for travel. Although your transport company must hold the relevant legalinsurances, you are responsible for insuring your horse for travel.

If your horse is travelling to another country, check with your insurance company that cover is in place for that.

Transport Companies- get listed 1 monthfree

Until recently, Find Horse Transport also provided a completely free service to all the transport companies on our register. Due to the fact that the system was abused, we have had to now incorporate a monthly charge - however the first month is entirely free so you can see if it works for you.
