Shipping Companies

US Shipping Companies     International Shippers

If you need a horse shipped from Iowa to your home, please check out these shippers.  We do not endorse any of these shippers in particular, but do know of some good experiences that customers of ours have had.

If you know of a good shipper that isn't listed, please share your shipper with us! 

In searching for the right shipper for you, we recommend that you ask questions such as these:

  • For Foals/Weanlings: Will they travel in a loose stall with a divider to the floor? Tying is NOT recommended for young horses!

  • How often do they transport horses (in case they only do one per month)? 

  • Do they have air conditioned trailers for the horses if the weather will be hot? 

  • Do they travel two people at a time (to help load/unload and monitor horses)?  

  • Do they have video surveillance of the inside of the trailer? 

  • What kind/size of stalls do the horses have? 

  • Do they unload horses from the trailer during the journey, and if so, how often?

  • Are they fed and watered during the trip, and if so, how often? 

  • What is the hauler's financial responsibility if there is an accident and a horse or person is hurt or killed? 

  • Do they offer shipping insurance, and if not, who can they recommend that you obtain insurance through?

  • Does he pull a tandem trailer rig (two trailers attached together)?  This is NOT desirable.

The answers to these questions will affect price, but you can pick the shipper you are most comfortable with if you evaluate these answers.  Also, see if they have a written contract or guarantee, especially about how often the horses are checked, unloaded, fed, etc. and if you want assurance of liability on their part for problems.
