Transporting Your Horse

Horses often need to be transported on public highways.

At the BHS we want to make sure you are safe at all times and that you have the right licence for the vehicle you are driving and/or towing.

Find out about the BHS Equestrian Transport Survey 2020 results here.

See our section on Driver Licensing Law for more information.

You may also find this VOSA leaflet (pdf) useful. Please note that it is intended only to offer general help and isn’t a legal document.

From 1 January 2021, there will be new rules in place for transporting horses to and from the EU. You can find out more here.
