“Thank you both very much for arranging my trip to the Dublin CSIO. The trip was planned to perfection and my horses arrived in great form and ready for competition. It was a pleasure dealing with you and I look forward to using your services again next year.”

“I was introduced to Raymond and Andrea of Equine International Shipping (EIS) by Patricia Nicholson, while attending the Goresbridge Elite sale for Eventers in November 2010. I was very impressed by their knowledge of the transportation industry and confidence to do the job with my needs and timeline in mind. In the early part of 2011, I bought a horse in Ireland and contacted EIS to ship the horse to the United States for me. The prompt service and attention to detail that I received, keeping me informed of the shipment dates of my horse and the competitive price that was offered to me for the shipping, made it an easy decision. I felt extremely comfortable shipping my horse through EIS knowing he was in safe hands. I have every intention to use EIS for any horse transportation needs I may have in the future. I wish the company all the best for the future and fully recommend their services for whatever your transport needs may be.”
Brendan W Furlong MVB, MRCVS United States Eventing Team Veterinarian
“EIS have shipped all our thoroughbred purchases to India since their company was founded.

We would have no hesitation recommending them to anyone with horses to ship worldwide.”
Hugo Merry – Bloodstock Agent, Kilshannig Stud, Co. Cork
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Raymond and all the members of Equine International for their great support and very efficient help. My horses travelled to the Dublin International Horse Show with ease thanks to Equine International. The stabling and the ferries were perfectly planned and thus my horses were in perfect shape when they got to Dublin.”
Abdel Said – Egyptian International & Team Harmony Showjumping Rider
“Andrea and Raymond,
I want to thank you from myself and my daughter Alex for everything you have done. You could not have been more professional and caring and we know Susie was in the very best hands! We will be back in Ireland in March 2012 and will come for a visit. And if we get the opportunity we will recommend you to anyone who needs horse transport.”
Nancy Phillips, New Hampshire, USA

“Raymond, a quick thank you for getting our four Irish Sport Horses safely to us. From dealing with my delay in getting a passport to tracking down a couple of lost blankets, to helping with the Inward Buyer Program, you took care of all the details big and small with the same efficiency. I look forward to doing business with you again. ”
Joan and Geoffrey Nichols (Vermont, USA)
“We would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Raymond and Andrea at EIS for doing such a great job, transporting our wonderful American Mule JOB safely back to the USA from Ireland. From my initial enquiry they were very informative and gave me a great quote straight away. They handled all veterinary requirements and paperwork very efficiently and aleviated all our worries. The groom was great and kept us updated along the route. Andrea and Raymond also provided very useful contacts and advice for the final leg of the transportation of our Mule from Newark to Texas, they could’nt have been more helpful. If we ever need transportation again we will definately use EIS and would warmly recommend them to anyone who is worried about the safe transport of their animals. Their service is first class and they are lovely people to work with.”
John & Hazel Fox, Texas, USA
Horses are our business.
The safety and comfort of our horses is paramount. We nurture and educate them from foals to top competition horses. We invest a great deal of time and money into each horse to get them to the top of their sport.
Therefore, when the time comes for them to leave our farm we want only the best for them, that’s why we use EIS.
EIS looks after the transport of our horses to many destinations around the world. They have flown them to North America, Canada, South Africa and Asia. EIS also takes care of transporting them to shows, airports and studs throughout Europe.
The reason we continue to exclusively use the services of EIS is because of their excellent service and value for money which we receive from Andrea and Raymond. They take care of all the details before the day of shipment which ensures no hick-ups. They take charge of our horses at the point of travel and we can be confident that they will look after them all the way to their end destination. It is most important that the horses arrive in perfect health as their new owners want them to be ready for the show ring and by using EIS we can guarantee that they will.

“We recently had occasion to ship a horse from Ireland to America with Equine International. I was more than pleased with their personal attention to detail, and frequent updates, not to mention efficient service. We were trying to ship in the middle of very bad winter weather on both sides of the Atlantic, and somehow, they made it all work. I would not hesitate to use them again.”
American International Showjumping Rider – Laura Chapot
“GSK International have been buying and shipping horses in Europe since 1990. Our association with Equine International Shipping Ltd. is now reaching the 10 year mark. Their performance in shipping horses to India has been outstanding and we recommend their services without hesitation.”

“For our move back to the United States (from England), transportation for our polo horses was a big concern. During the due diligence process we talked with several agents but became most comfortable with EIS, and in particular with Raymond. Not only was EIS responsive to our inquiry, but in talking about the logistics of the move with them, you got the sense they were, and would continue to be, personally committed to making this happen as easily as possible and truly cared about the horses themselves. It wasn’t just another ticket to print. Raymond was great about walking me through the process and the costs as well as coordinating the required testing with our local veterinarian. The trip went exactly as it was planned and the horses arrived in great shape. Raymond and the staff at EIS provided an excellent service with a truly personal touch.”
J. A. Schlesinger – Avalon Polo Team, (Baltimore, MD)
“What might have seemed like a daunting task in the beginning was completely simplified by EIS. I have been fortunate enough to bring multiple horses over from Ireland to the United States and this was largely because of the help and guidance by Raymond and Andrea. I am confident in sending my horses over, as I feel like I am with them every step of the way. Raymond does an excellent job of keeping me infromed every step of the process and I know that both my horses and I are getting the best customer service possible.”
Marley Stone – Kintnersville, PA, USA
“I was very pleased with Andrea and Raymond’s very knowledgeable, efficient, and personal service in every aspect of transporting my horse from Ireland to the United States. From my initial e-mail inquiry to the news of my horse's arrival, they provided direct, reliable, and trustworthy service and responded quickly and helpfully to all of my questions. They called to up-date me on the well-being of my horse during the different stages of his journey, and they took care to provide a highly experienced and skilled groom, Lucy, to accompany my horse and his travel-mate on the airplane. My horse could not have received better care. It was a pleasure to work with people who not only know horses but who also know how to handle all the needs of their clients with grace and skill. I recommend EIS enthusiastically.”
Annette Luther (Pennsylvania, USA)
“EIS look after all the travel arrangements for my horses from Ireland to the United States. Their performance has been exceptional and I recommend them highly.”
Paul O’ Shea – Irish International Rider & Nations Cup Team Member
You did a beautiful job shipping the horses. The horses were in the best condition than any other horse we have received from Europe. Bravo!!
Barbara Chapin – (Salinas CA, USA)
“I had the pleasure of working with EIS earlier this year when I chose them to ship my horse to the USA. They made the seemingly daunting process simple and seamless, everything from the pre travel blood work to customs clearance on the US side was handled with ease and without a glitch. In addition, the folks at EIS were professional and pleasant to deal with, patiently answering all of my questions and concerns. They were communicative throughout the entire trip giving me status updates such as letting me know when they were about to take off and again that they had landed safely in the US. They even e-mailing me photos of my horse on the pallet at the Airport!! In talking to both Andrea and Raymond at EIS, it's apparent that not only are they capable and competent but they are also compassionate horse lovers, a factor that was important to me personally since I was going to trust them with the safety. comfort and well being of my inexperienced young horse. I have no hesitation in recommending EIS and without a doubt would use them again should the situation arise. Thanks to all at EIS for getting my horse to the USA safe and sound and for making the trip as comfortable and easy as possible.”
Fiona Finn – Showjumping Rider (Newport RI USA)
Our Dressage Group travelled to Marlton Stud in Wicklow in June 2007. I was recommended to use EIS, Equine International Shipping Ltd. and could not have been more pleased with the care we received. Dealing with the office was a pleasure, they were so helpful, and when the weather changed dramatically, we were kept updated on all the changes to our sailings. We will definitely use this company in 2008.
