In order to ensure that your horse travels as smoothly as possible, Goldners takes the most direct routing possible. We recognise that the longer horses are on a truck, the more disruptive travel can be. We schedule transport with this in mind to benefit you and your horse.
On longer journeys, horses are rested at least every twelve hours, and receive feed and water at our stabling complexes.
All of our fleet allow for single, 1.5, double, and box stalls for your horse as required. Call us today to experience ‘Goldners Quality’ service on your next important horse movement.
Goldners ensures safe and reliable transport of your horses to and from sales events.
Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements, or grab the Goldners team member at the sales.
Goldners is approved for pick-up and drop-off at Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) stations, and has done so thousands of times.
Find answers to your questions.
The simple answer to this is yes. Most of the states and suburbs we move horses to and from around Australia are still allowing the movement of horses as we are seen as essential services. As with everything there are some exceptions, but most of our major routes are still open for business.
We try to keep interstate schedules as they were pre-COVID-19. However, this is not always possible due to the ever changing landscape of government regulations. We are always monitoring the situation as closely as we can to facilitate smooth and timely travel for your horse.
In general the following information will be required: name, sex, pick up and drop off location and site contact details, billing and payment details.
