About Us

The JCS Livestock team has a dedication and passion for Horse Transportation. Our focus is in dealing with the individual so that not only you, but also your horses, are treated like VIPs.

Whether you are transporting for an event, an international buyer or simply purchasing as a gift, our team will make the process simple and straightforward.

We are DEFRA approved and have a global network of trusted partners with whom we work – all experienced in equine movements.


JCS Livestock is heavily involved in wildlife conservation, zoological transport and we regularly donate to animal charities. Animals are our priority and we have spent the past two decades as an industry leader in their safe and humane transport.


Whilst we have our own quarantine approved vehicles and handle regular domestic and EU transfers, our focus is on international transport. We have close working relationships with airlines, zoos, wildlife parks and like-minded global agents.


We transferred this industry-leading expertise to equine shipping, with the USA, Middle East and Australasia our main markets. Because we cater to the individual, we can tailor our service to meet the needs of our customers, whatever their destination.


International transport of any animal is complex. The bureaucracies at origin and destination can be arduous and often differ in their requirements, so it is important to work with a provider who has experience in these specialist moves.
