What is the minimum amount of time you need to notice for transport?
We need at least 24 hours’ notice for transport, but the more notice you can give us, the better. This allows us to plan our schedule and ensure we have the resources available to accommodate your request.

Do you have any tips for preparing my horse for transport?
Here are a few tips for preparing your horse for transport:
-Give your horse time to get used to being in a trailer before transport. Take them for short trips around the block or to a nearby park if possible. This will help them get used to the trailer and make the journey smoother for both of you.
-Make sure that your horse is up to date on their vaccinations. This will help protect them from disease while in close quarters with other horses.
-Pack hay and water for your horse to eat and drink while on the journey. This will help to keep them comfortable and hydrated during transport.
-Label all of your tacks and clearly mark any fragile items that could be damaged during transport. This will help to ensure that everything arrives safely at your destination.
