Every story of a successful equestrian business begins with a true horseman. For Guido Klatte International Horse Transport, the story begins with an entire family of horsemen and women. From its family farm in the village of Lastrup, located in the heart of Germany’s famed Oldenburg horse area, the Klatte family can trace its history back over 300 years.
After a competition career in international show jumping and eventing, Guido Klatte began flying horses in the mid-1980s. His experience in agricultural exports and the horse business laid the foundation for what has now become one of the worlds most successful international horse transport agencies.
With nine transport trucks that make up the most modern, newest fleet in the European Union, and weekly flights booked around the globe per year, Guido Klatte Horse Transport moves more than a few thousand horses per year.
Over the years, Guido Klatte GmbH & Co. KG has handled all different types of horses. We have had the pleasure of transporting many Olympic and World Champion equine athletes, young prospects on their way to a new life overseas, and pleasure horses that are worth their weight in gold to their loving owners.
It is a big responsibility for us to get every horse in our care to its destination safely and comfortably. We thrive on the challenge, thank every client for their trust in our knowledge and we appreciate the business they give to us.
