Richmonds Horse Transport was originally set up by Herbert Richmond under the name of Epsom Coaches in 1920.

Although the Company is better known for it’s coaches, Mr Richmond realised there was a demand for horse transport – even in the mid 1920’s!

Richmond’s horseboxes were hired by the local trainers to go to race meetings held at Alexandra Palace, Hurst Park, Kempton Park, Sandown Park, Folkestone, Fontwell, Lingfield, Newbury, Plumpton, Windsor, Wye as well as many others in the southeast. In addition to race meetings, Richmond’s
conveyed horses to the bloodstock sales at Newmarket and Ascot.

During the war, Roddy Richmond had all of his horseboxes requisitioned by the Army. During the latter years of the war, the trainers decided to form a syndicate, and asked Mr Richmond to purchase some second-hand horseboxes so that he could recommence business. Following this his clientele grew

In 1953, following a period of some expansion and the ability to buy new
vehicles with the release of rationing, the Company sold the horsebox division to local trainers and it is this business we know today as Richmond’s Horse Transport.

The business has expanded to cover all area’s of the globe and Richmonds is commonly called upon to transport for the police, army and horse professionals.
