To transport horses from the Netherlands to another country within Europe or beyond, it is necessary for your horse to be inspected and/or certified by the NVWA. These examinations can take place on our stables, where you benefit from a better rate. Of course, we can also have the vet come to your location.
As an additional service we can do the process application for both individuals and companies and apply for inspections at the NVWA (Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority). The vet will check the identity of the horse and whether the animal is fit enough to be transported. Applying for these examinations and/or certifications has become a complicated operation. We are happy to take this off your hands.
All our transports and vehicles comply with the latest legal requirements in accordance with COUNCIL REGULATION (EC) No 1/2009 of 22 December 2004 on the protection of animals during transport and related operations and amending Directives 64/432/EEC and 93/119/EC and Regulation (EC) No 1255/97.
