    Default Horse Shipping - Ocala Area - Suggestions Please

    Can anyone recommend a good horse transportation company in/around Ocala, FL? I am looking to ship a horse from Ocala to Mississippi.

    Creech or Lorraine if you're willing to pick him/her up at a track in MS; Brookledge might go out that way.
    Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.

    Jerry at Painted Oaks Transport! I've used him twice, fantastic care. Be prepared for him to talk your ear off, though. 386-754-0905 or paintedoakstransport@hughes.net. They're in Lake City, but run all over.

    Might want to drop Kyle of Pine Valley Acres an email transportation@pinevalleyacres.com. I have done business with him before and can recommend him as a shipper. He just emailed me and has a transport going to FL on the 28th so you might be able to get on the return trip

    where in MS? know a great hauler/trainer (not my trainer but hauls for us- so kind to horses and very trustworthy) in Memphis, TN that will probably be picking up a mare in ocala in a couple weeks.

    I think Equine Express does a run from Tx. to Fl. every week or so. I would highly recommend them. They have a website.

    Second the recommendation for Equine Express. I think they have a presence in Ocala as well.
