Ponies have arrived safe and sound in their temporary home.
Thank you for the outstanding care and attention you and your staff have shown our horses, thank you also for making the whole process of importing our horses to New Zealand so easy.
I would highly recommend your company to anyone wishing to send their horses overseas.

After their sea travel and then a further 2 days to get to me, I would have thought that Meteor and Freelady would both be exhausted, but they came off the transporter with a spring in their step and a jog down the driveway to their new paddocks. There was no lying down through tiredness, instead it was a quick look around and then they tucked into their feeds. They have arrived in superb condition (perhaps a little too good!) and have settled in and are very happy.
Once again, thank you for your wonderful, friendly and professional service. I would not hesitate to use Sea Horse Sea Freight again.
Kazmere Stud, Christchurch
We highly recommend anyone considering shipping horses to do so with Sea Horse Sea Freight. Thanking you once again.
Maioro Endurance Arabians
The two horses from White Robe arrived at the stables yesterday morning at 10.30 a.m. They were in terrific condition and were straight into their food. They evidently had a very calm trip over. We would like to thank you for keeping us in touch with their progress during their trip. We are very impressed with your service, and hopefully will be using it again before long.
Sea Horse Sea Freight Ltd, made the process easy, they organized everything from importing blood tests at the Stud, pick-up from the stud and transport from Brisbane to Sydney with a reputable transporter, quarantine, vaccinations, importing paperwork, shipping, to unloading on the Port and dealing with MAF. They gave us daily updates of the Donnerubin’s entire 5 day trip from Stud to Port Tauranga. By their superior care, Donnerubin arrived in the same condition he left the stud in, he maintained all his weight, was calm and chirpy on arrival, all of which was due ultimately to the competence of the Sea Horse Sea Freight staff.
Our trust in them was rewarded with a service that was faultless. We will never forget their kindness and service to us. We would highly recommend their service and while it may seem a daunting task importing, their professionalism makes the process painless.

It was a massive decision for us to bring our stallion who had survived colic surgery and I want to thank you for ensuring his diet remained the same throughout the whole journey. I was super impressed your groom followed them to Cambridge which was great as I got to talk to him and thank him personally and hear from him that all five travelled so well.
Thank you again and I have already highly recommended you in Facebook.
After the sea trip he was spelled a couple days in Sydney and then travelled to Melbourne, spelled, Adelaide, spelled, Kalgoolie, spelled then to me in Perth. He appears as good as he left in condition and as he was unbroken has definitely been the making of him. Attached photos on arrival. I look forward to repeating this trip with more yearlings.
Very happy he is here, can't help but keep going out to his paddock to make sure he's still there!!
I want to thank Seahorse Seafreight for the wonderful job done with my boys. As you know I had a bad experience moving Baz to Australia, so the trip back to NZ was always going to be a worry, and now there were 2 horses to worry about!! But the whole experience this time around was fantastic, Sydney Horse Transport were exceptional moving the boys from the Sunshine Coast to the port in Sydney, and Majestic were wonderful in the move also from Tauranga to Oxford.
The whole process was easy and stress-free, everyone kept me updated through the whole journey, and the boys were kept side by side the whole trip, which made for happy horses at the other end! Neither of them looked as though they had travelled, let alone from QLD-CHCH!!
Seahorse Seafrieght are a real asset to anyone wanting to move horses internationally, and I would recommend your services to anybody! I cant thank you enough!!!
I thought I let him recover on his own, nice and quiet but he looked so lonely and bored I decided to put him in with the stallion and gelding after two hours. They had some meet and greet going on and then business as usual;.....grazing!
Thanks again for taking care of him and your excellent service.
All the best.
We'll send you the video, and some photos when we get the horses home. Yours thankfully and with relief!
In November 2002, having purchased another purebred Arabian mare from Australia, I was naturally very hesitant about bringing her to New Zealand by sea. However, excellent reports from colleagues who had used John and Alison Lozell of Sea Horse Sea Freight, reassured me that history would not repeat itself.
On November 30, 2002, I collected my mare from their depot and cannot speak highly enough of both the service I received and the care and attention given to my mare. At all times, Alison kept me fully informed of dates of pick up by the transporter, vet checks, etc., and likely arrival times. I even received email pictures of the mare on the morning of her arrival. This testimonial cannot reflect praise enough for John and Alison. Their shipping containers are totally professionally designed and fitted out and John and Alison are thoroughly professional horse people. What a difference. My thanks to you both, the travelling groom and your Australian agent.
