John Parker International Horse Transport was established in 1977 and has over 30 years experience in transporting horses across Europe and worldwide. The company is based in Little Owl Barn, Hythe and has its own DEFRA approved stables and modern fleet of highly specialised horseboxes.
Parkers' fleet of horseboxes are driven by very capable men and women who take care and pride in the horses they carry. The second generation of the Parker family, Fred is now on the road, continuing the tradition established by John and Jackie.
John Parker International pride themselves in their caring and professional attitude. This attitude coupled with our experience and friendly nature ensures that our customers return time and time again.
We have good access to the motorway being just two miles from Junction 11 of the M20. As we are ten minutes outside of Dover, the horses can have a good rest and stretch their legs before continuing their journey. For directions to Little Owl Barn please see our directions page.
The yard is open to both customers of John Parker International and other transporters who wish to use the facilities. We can transport other animals as well as horses, please contact us for more information.
