When it comes to flying, horses are like humans. Both want comfort and safety. After more than 35 years collaborating with airlines, owners and handlers, we’ve become the world’s specialist in designing certified ULDs for shipping horses by air. Each one of our horse stalls provides the best level of animal welfare and groom safety possible.
Give your horses first-class accommodation. Features such as a low entrance, adjustable ventilation and vibration damping floor offer them a calm environment during ground handling and in flight.
Soft, cleanable padding, attachment points for hay and ropes, and watertight floor pans with sufficient absorption material ensure every horse arrives in tip-top condition and ready to perform.
