    Default Cost to import a Gelding from Germany to West Coast?

    Just wanted to get an idea of what the current fees are for shipping, quarantine, etc. to import a gelding from Germany to LAX?

    Call jet pets based in playa del rey just a few minutes from LAX. That is where the horse will be quarantined. They can provide you with the overall cost and put you in touch with a shipping agent.

    call some shippers...and talk to whoever is sending the horse from Germany as often dealers/breeders/sellers on the sending end have relationships w/ shippers. A friend of mine in Ireland has worked out fees w/ a shipper there.. The quarantine rate may vary for mares and geldings since mares and stallions are quarantined longer...

    Since the dollar is up against the Euro.. it should be a bit less expensive but you never know...
