Europe map

At BBA Shipping we provide a first class road transport service throughout Europe, with regular trips to Ireland and France.

Currently on the road we have three modern Olympic horseboxes painted in our distinctive red and white colours.

We can organise everything you need to transport your horse in and around Europe including:

  • Government Health Papers
  • Customs Documents
  • Transit Stabling
  • Stud Book Registration
  • Ferry Booking Service

If you are thinking of having a runner, at any racecourse in Europe, give us a call. We can help you organise your paperwork, ferry bookings, flights stabling and accommodation — whatever your needs may be.
