We’ve been consistently providing high levels of care for horses in transit and at our numerous, fully equipped stables around New Zealand for over 80-years. We’re unbeatable at what we do, which is provide first class travel and care for your horse. Everything we do is completely under the Majestic umbrella; nothing is outsourced.
Since our incorporation in 1938 we have grown through acquisition to become the dominant industry provider. With each purchase we have gained additional knowledge, experience and expertise that has helped us to provide ‘business as usual’ continuity and great customer experiences. We have ultimately grown because we understand the financial and emotional investment that our clients have in their horses. We value animal welfare above all else.
Yesterday I had a bit of a drama to deal with – in that a transport company picked up a young TB from me. Mine (who travelled to me many hours on a truck on it’s own) was a bit sticky about loading, not helped by the abrupt approach being taken with it (we ‘mares’ like a little more tact!).
I then get a phone call shortly after to say they’d taken my TB off to load another on at a racing stable and couldn’t get mine back on. Said horse was thankfully able to stay in a box at Baker Racing and I got on the phone to Majestic.
As always, Majestic sorted it out pronto, with their usual prompt service (I find if Majestic say they’re dropping a horse off at 2.30, my electric road gate is opening at 2.30 on the dot!). Their new driver, first day on her own, unloaded 3 happy horses at my end, credit to her driving and horsemanship.
Majestic may not be the cheapest around, but they don’t take your horse on a scenic tour of the country and their loading/travelling systems work well – they don’t compromise horses.
We would not use anyone else, you guys are extremely professional. Julie keeps me constantly updated with arrival times etc which is great as I have to duck out from work and the guys on the trucks are awesome! We would highly recommend and thank you for the peace of mind you guys give when our horses and precious foals are travelling!
I was extremely worried about my horses being transported to the Wairapapa from Wanganui. Especially my 23year old mare, who on any other occasion has always arrived stiff and sore after being trucked or floated as she is arthritic, so she was my main concern.
Upon the truck arrival I was immediately put to ease and felt relaxed about them being trucked with your driver. The horses arrived in excellent condition and not stressed at all, even the old horse came off free moving.
I can not thank you enough for getting my horses to their new home safely and in good condition. So it goes without saying I would highly recommend Majestic horse Floats to anybody wanting to have their horses transported .
Once again, Thank you!

We were travelling our thoroughbred in a quality float from North Wellington to Hamilton. However when we checked the horse at Foxton, we discovered he was very agitated, sweaty and shaking. We rang Majestic’s 0800 number whilst parked on the side of the road at Foxton and we agreed we could drop the horse at Majestic Bulls and they would transport it the following day to Hamilton. OMG what Lifesavers, as we were in a very difficult situation with the horse. We were met at Majestic Bulls by a friendly man, and our horse could not wait to unload. He went into a grass paddock with hay a new mate over the fence and settled right in. What a huge relief for us, and thank you so much Majestic for going the extra mile to help us.
I found everything great right from the team that answered the phone through to the driver who dropped them off. When I called they were friendly and super helpful they gave me a price and date right away. The driver who delivered them was awesome! The horses all arrived happy and relaxed he helped me put them all away into the paddocks after taking them off the truck. I was having a little trouble with Jones (the Colt) he wouldn’t walk through the gates and into his paddock so before he unloaded the girls and came and gave me a hand with getting Jones into his paddock and doing the gates. It may not sound like much but it was a big help and I really appreciated it.
Kojack got delivered safe and sound today, thanks for ensuring that he was looked after on his trip.
We found your whole service amazing. Everyone was really friendly and helpful. Jasmine was fantastic updating us on the journey and the llamas arrived in good shape and very easy to unload. They didn’t appear stressed after the journey and settled in really well. Thank you so much for your good care and superb excellent transport. I didn’t need to be so anxious!

I have been so nervous about getting my horse Tom to his new home. I am moving overseas and I have about a million things to worry about, but the team at Majestic Horse Transport took the biggest thing off my list – getting my boy safely to his next home. They were absolutely great to help me on short notice, they called me and kept me in the loop every step of the way, and they treated him so well. Tom managed the journey from North Island to South Island extremely well, and I can’t thank Chris, Anthony and the rest of the team enough for everything you did to make it a smooth and easy move on both of us. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone who wants the best for their horse.
Just wanted to say a big Thank You to the Majestic team for transporting Red last week. He arrived happily at his new home!
It was a pleasure to deal with you all (good communication, friendly driver, punctual and horse arrived safe and well). Thank you to your team and I’ll look forward to the next time!
I just want to say thank you – this is the first time I have used any transport and I was very impressed with my whole experience.A special thanks to the driver who helped us out when our truck couldn’t meet at the designated point – hugely appreciated!
Have a great Easter break.
Hi Ward, just a quick note to say how impressed I was with the two drivers who delivered the latest China Quarantine horses to our facility. They were patient and understanding and a pleasure to deal with
