Welcome to Cooper International Horse Transport.

We are a professional international horse transport company. The Cooper family have been in the horse business for over 200 years as dealers and shippers. When we started in the horse  business the mechanically propelled vehicle had not yet been invented, all the horses at that time were walked and ridden back from the fairs, sales and farms throughout Ireland to our yard in Dublin or one of our outfarms outside the city awaiting shipping.

The arrival of the trains and their stock carriages created greater efficiency and of course less tiring for horse and man, later of course saw the introduction of road and air transport.

Yes we have been in the business of shipping horses a long time, but that is not to say we haven’t moved with the times. Today we operate Ireland’s newest and most modern fleet of purpose built horse transporters, we have established contacts with all the major airlines who carry horses and have a network of trusted agents worldwide.

As has always been the case the vast majority of horses that leave Ireland do so through Dublin port or airport . We are the only shipping company with their own purpose built stabling and shipping facility in Dublin. Almost adjacent to Dublin airport and a very short drive to Dublin ferry port, this facility has enabled horses to be truly rested before they step onto their flight or are driven onto the ferry UK or Europe bound. Your horses welfare and wellbeing is always priority with Cooper International Horse Transport.
