Virtually every country requires an isolation period before the horses are allowed to be transported, apart from America and a few other countries. During this isolation period, also called pre-export quarantine (PEQ), the horses are under veterinary supervision. The isolation period starts after an inspection by the NVWA of the isolation space and the animals. The duration depends on the requirements of the exporting country. For example, the horses from China or South Africa must remain in solitary confinement for 30 days.

HSI has 44 stables available at our location in Meterik, including 15 new stables of 300 x 350 centimetres, including a luxury washing area and a solarium. These stables are not all in one area. HSI has divided the stables into compartments so that several countries can be put into isolation. Only authorised stable personnel have access to these areas. The quarantine department has a separate access to the riding arena, so you can continue to train your horse.

HSI takes the isolation period very seriously. The regulations and conditions are accurately complied with. In addition, the animals receive excellent care.

Stalbles and stable personel
HSI also offers normal stabling. Our clients are mostly busy entrepreneurs who do not always have time to get all the paperwork ready. The horses then already get stabled with us, while we take care of the necessary export documents. Our stable personnel are carefully selected based on experience and proper handling of horses. Their job is to take good care of the horses and to maintain their physical condition. Before leaving, the horses are neatly washed and groomed, ready for the big trip.

External stabling
HSI provides external pre-export quarantine stables that are recognised by the NVWA for, for example, large groups of horses that go together on a charter flight to countries like China, Cuba and Argentina. The horses are made ready for export there under the supervision of HSI and in cooperation with the external stable and the NVWA. HSI subsequently provides the correct customs documentation.

Omgeving HSI

Riding arena
The entire riding arena was refurbished, both inside and out, in 2013. The roof of the riding arena is equipped with insulating roof panels. The arena has been renewed inside with a wooden fence edging and an ebb and flow surface. The surface thus remains in excellent condition throughout the year. Clients who train their horses during the quarantine place great value on a good surface. The stable personnel ensure that the surface is made even daily.

Gastverblijf HSI

HSI notices that the demand for quarantine space increases year by year, as well as asking to continue to train the horses during the isolation. Clients can lodge their own groom or rider on request during the quarantine so that they can train the horses in the appropriate enclosure. We find it important that riders and grooms can always stay close to their horses. HSI has therefore furnished a first-class apartment, including a kitchen, bathroom, TV and Wi-Fi.
