Collect horse from Lerwick to take to Yell?

Recommended Posts

Can someone help?


I'm moving up in 3 weeks (possibly 4 weeks). I have a horse that will be moving up with me.

I'm using Eric Gillies to get her from Buckinghamshire to Aberdeen. Then she will go on the ferry and be in the care of the ferry all the way to Lerwick.

She needs to be collected from the ferry in Lerwick, taken off, and taken to Yell which is where my land is (Sellafirth).


At this point, I don't know if I'll be up a day or two before, or a day or two after, her arrival... I'm desperately trying to find someone who can collect her and watch over her (on their land temporarily). If I'm already on my land, I can meet her with the person at Lerwick and take her straight to my home. I don't have the licence or vehicle to take her myself.


I've tried contacting Shetland Equestrian Centre three times but have had no replies. I'm so worried that I won't be able to bring her up... Does anyone know anyone who might be able to help??



She is a heavy 16.2hh Percheron mare. Insured under BHS Gold and fully passported. She is being wormed in a week.


I would pay for fuel, time, etc etc.

I would keep trying Shetland Equestrian Centre - have you phoned - 01595 840283.


Your best bet as they will probably have the insurance to travel horses for other folk.  Individuals with horseboxes/trailers don't.

Called twice. First time there was no answer. Second time there was no answer so left a voicemail with contact details. Will keep trying, as I have no other option. So worried atm.
