    Default Horse Transportation Recommendations PA to NV

    I am getting ready to purchase a horse located in PA and will be shipping him to Nevada.

    Does anyone have any recommendations? I've already asked for a quote from Brookledge, but would like to have more than one option.

    Thanks for the help and recommendations!

    Not 100% happy with recent shipping experience with Dannie/Dusty Gilder transport - spotty communication, and questionable common sense practices.
    Horses should be trained in such a way that they not only love their riders, but look forward to the time they are with them.

    Check with Johnson Horse Transportation, they are in the same area as Brookledge.

    If you search here, you will find many recommendations for Johnson's.

    I've used Zachary Keith a few years ago shipping from SC to PA and was extremely happy with him. He also was one of the cheapest.

    Thanks for the recommendations everyone. Someone else suggested Bob Hubbard, but I read some scary reviews on them in other posts on this form. So I was a little scared. Heading to PA next weekend to try the horse, fingers crossed!

    Equine Express lately has been good for us.
