John collected my new horse from Scotland yesterday, she hasn’t travelled for years and was a very nervous loader and traveller. She arrived warm but not sweating and walked calmly off the lorry. John kept me updated the whole journey and really took care of my new shire mare over a 13hr journey. I would 100% recommend him and wouldn’t hesitate to use again. Worth every penny for a good experience.

Sally and Doug Dwyer: We cannot rate John highly enough, he has just transported our horse to France with so much care and consideration for both horse and owners, nothing was too much trouble, be it paper work passports or polos, everything was very professional but at the same time he treated our horse as though she was his own. We would recommend John Lovett transport every time, we cannot thank John enough and would like to give him more than 5 stars.

John did an amazing job of bringing my new horse from Somerset to Oxfordshire. 5 star service from start to finish. Very professional and the patience of a saint when dealing with a very tricky seller. Definitely would recommend him to anyone looking to transport their horse, pony or donkey.

I can’t recommend John enough. A very kind and patient man. My Shire Horse is only 17 months old and John was absolutely great with him. John also drives exceptionally well. My horse was very happy and realaxed when he was unloaded.

Amie Waygood

John did a fabulous job transporting Halo from Denmark to Cornwall despite winter storms and ferry delays.. John’s care and attention to her welfare were evident and she arrived happy, calm and bright eyed �
After 9 years in Denmark she has returned home to rejoin her Morgan family. She is a special girl and I would like to thank John for looking after her so well. I’d recommend John Lovett to anyone requiring horse transportation

Gilly Bent

John moved my two horses up to Scotland from Milton Keynes, he was professional and great with the horses. Even our terrible loader went straight on!! the horses arrived happy and safely. I would definitely recommend his services and I’d like to say thanks to him as well!!!!!

Emma Wares

Drove my horse from the UK to Prague and I was very satisfied with the service. There were some complications due to bad weather conditions and John was able to help out in no time and help with all the documents. Made the trip much easier and less stressful for me.

Jolana Samii

Big thanks to John for having done an excellent job transporting my pony all the way from Scotland to Germany. The pony arrived very relaxed despite the long trip including a hold-up at Dover due to bad weather the previous day. Very flexible moving the date of transport forward to avoid strong winds on the ferry! Very good value for money considering it having been a private transport to avoid any contact with other horses in times of the equine flu. Would definitely recommend John Lovett Horse Transport!!

Patricia Pietruszka

I would not hesitate to recommend John Lovett to anyone wanting horses moved with care and professionalism.
John did the trip at short notice and at very reasonable cost, meaning we could relax and prepare things at home instead of spending hours on the road.
My new boy arrived completely calm and unloaded like he was stepping out of his stable!

Nina Collins

After major lorry failure I found myself stranded with two horses on the slip road to M5 – one mare a seasoned traveler the bigger mare one who won’t be partitioned tight and who is difficult to load into a small space due to an historical accident in a trailer / I have rescue relay and they sent me the lovely John and his box / I spoke with John before he came out to me and he happily removed his partition from his lorry to give the big mare all of the back to accommodate me – and her !! He was friendly – helpful and understanding of the horses needs and got us all home ( horses in two separate boxes) and was even understanding Re a rather large GSD needing to come to x I would highly recommend john for caring efficient horse transport to anyone – thank you john
