Reindeer Hire UK
At reindeer For Hire we specialise in the supply of trained reindeer for events throughout the UK.
We have over 10 years experience in the supply of trained animals for use in events film and television. Our handlers are experienced and trained, and we carry all of the required insurances and licences to ensure your event goes smoothly.
Because we own and train our own animals we are able to spend time training and conditioning them for work in public spaces, which is why they are used to crowds noise, flash photography and human contact. However, like us all they must be respected and we make sure that they always receive the very best care and husbandry. We make sure our reindeer get the breaks they require and that the conditions are always suitable to ensure they are healthy and happy.
As well as reindeer hire we also supply vintage sleighs and have a selection of 7 available for prop hire. Our reindeer have specially made harnesses and bell straps.
Each year we attend many events and each one is of great importance to us.
We will pledge to:
- Be punctual and reliable
- Smart in appearance
- Polite and amenable
- Help risk asses each venue
- Leave your venue tidy and free from any mess
Our aim is to make your Christmas experience as enjoyable as possible.

The Animal Company

Yes!! Our reindeer are trained to pull sleighs. These are antique sleighs which we import. Our sleighs are tastefully decorated.
Like most animals reindeer can be trained. In Northern Sweden for example reindeer have been trained to work with man, pulling sleighs for hundreds of years. Our handlers ensure that the reindeer are well catered for, that they are comfortable and happy.
At the Animal Company we work on a full time basis with our animals, which means that we are able to spend every week in October re-training our reindeer and getting them ready for the Christmas period. They are handled daily and get very used to human interaction.
Although reindeer are not usually aggressive, males can stay in the rut into November. This is why we only use castrated males and females. We also provide risk assessments instructing our clients of what is needed for each event.
The Animal Company organise all movement licences and insurances on your behalf. We are also members of ACTA.
We have a performing animals licence for up to 6 hours. However, our animals work for 4 hour slots. Reindeer get bored after about 3.5 hours on a display.
We can supply hand washing stations at an extra cost. Customers are advised to provide some for of water hand washing.
