Had contracted with Double C Transport (also dba "CCbarD equine transport") for pick up and delivery 6/21.  Mare & foal were to be picked up in College Station, TX.  Person I bought them from called me at 11:20am to tell me they were on their way.  A little after 12:00pm, the hauler's dad (father / son business) calls to tell me they're are on their way.  All is good.  This is a trip that shouldn't take any longer than 9 hours.

At almost 5:00pm, I get a call from hauler's dad to tell me they are having equipment trouble.  I ask where they are at - thinking I will get my truck/trailer and go get mare & foal.  They are near Conroe which is not more than 1 1/2 hours from College Station!  He has the number of a guy recommended by Gene Darby (see recommendations on him!) that is in Crockett, TX, and horses will be hauled rest of the way by him.  My horses did not arrive in Crockett until 7:00pm that day - which I found out because the NEW shipper (Bert Wellman) took it upon himself to call me and let me know.  Bert told me that my horses would be fed and watered then delivered around 1pm the next day (6/22).

I had left several messages with both Dagleys (father & son - Double C Transport) to call me - as well as an email to contact me.

I still have not heard from them.  As for the new shipper, Bert, he stayed in touch with me the whole time he was on the road.  When Bert arrived, I asked him if he had heard from the Dagleys and he said yes and that they had not called me because they figured I would be mad at them.  Well DUH! 
If they had called when they broke down, I wouldn't have minded at all and would have taken off to get my horses myself.  It is the time spent on the trailer in the heat (for horses) and not staying in contact with me that has me (STILL) so peeved.

Please allow this post to be a warning to anyone that has received an offer to have their horse transported by the McLemore couple.  I purchased a gelding and he was to be picked in Billings, MT on July 20th with delivery to Florida no later than July 24th. Well day 2 the trouble began. The communication was downright awful.  Phone calls were made to these individuals to no avail as well as e-mails.  Kay would return an e-mail once a day around 9:30pm/10pm with some excuse as to why things are not moving along as planned.  We were rather understanding right up until Saturday, July 19th, when the lines of communication really broke down.  I, as well as the individual that he was purchased from, kept calling and e-mailing desperately asking how my gelding was handling the heat and when we could expect delivery.  We were constantly fed LIES after LIES!  Once again we were told Sunday delivery...no call no e-mail until 9:45pm wherein Kay advises not going to make it.  I e-mail back asking for delivery ASAP!! Needless to say my gelding was on their rig for 7 days in July and when he was unloaded Tuesday, July 27th, he had NO LEGS underneath him from the hard and fast journey they took, box stall was filthy, she refused to unload him until payment was made, he was SEVERELY DEHYDRATED to the point of losing easily 100lbs.  This gelding was gorgeous when he boarded their rig and now he is so drawn up and weak it makes me nauseous! 

These individuals did not care for this horse at all! It was **** poor service at best and PLEASE do not allow them to do this to your horse.  If you have any further questions feel free to PM me and I will be more than happy to send you pictures, e-mails, etc showing the damage that was done to this gelding.  

DO NO USE THESE HAULERS!!

I sold a horse to a woman in Ohio who booked the haul from TX to OH with a woman named Renee Strange in TX.  Also listed on the contract were Dusty and Dannie Gilder from MO.  3 hours into the trip that was supposed to take a day and a half we got a call wanting to keep the horse in MO for a 6 day layover so they could schedule other horses for the trip north.  All said and done the horse was put on the trailer early Tuesday morning and arrived in Ohio late that Saturday night.  The horse did appeared to be in good condition.  They were dishonest in their dealings and there were misrepresentations on other counts as well. I would not recomend them to anyone.

We just shipped a mare to CA from MO with Dannie Gilder. We had a little bit of trouble with the pick up date. But they picked the mare up on Sunday & she was in CA on Wen evening.

We have also used Cowboy Express & Horse Equine Express (Joseph Humes) and they have both done a good job for us.

If I cant find a ride with a person I know well, then the only two I will use is -

Bob Hubbard transport- USA

Cox equine transport - gainseville


These two companies are always on the ball have clean, beautiful trucks & trailers , actually have horse people and teams of driviers, so no layovers normally, except to rest the horses.  They will call you upon leaving and to schedule on time deliveries, and call again when they are near your deliver location.. I can reach them anytime day or night

Rates are really reasonable for their service, will discount multi horses and they have trucks & drivers  all over the country all the time.  I love them both.  Hubbard was here this morning around 4:45am, called me to wake me up to unload horses.. Horses are never stressed when they get off the Semi, drivers are very nice and professional.

I used Creech Bros. Tranport a few years back.  Shipped a TB gelding from Maryland to Oklahoma.  He did have to layover in Kentucky for a day, which was the original plan.  He arrived in Oklahoma on schedule and in perfect shape.  Otherwise we transport ourselves.

I work in the same town this company is located in and we have used them and I highly recommend them. They were the haulers for Zenyatta from the airport to the racetrack in Kentucky which I think was pretty cool.

Anyone know anything about OUTLAW TRASNPORT (Randy Entler) or R/B Equine Transport (Barb and Randy Ruhlman, rbpainthorsescom)? I got quotes from the two of them, but hadn't heard of either.

Barb and Randy have hauled three horses for me now..right now picking up a mare for me in Oklahoma. I also have had them stop at my old place and unload horses that had been on and needed a break.

These two people KNOW horses and KNOW how to properly haul. They are great at communicating ...

My stallion is not the best hauler, and he arrived here not even looking like he had been on a trailer..

I was also not 100% impressed with Glider... Nothing terrible but the plans changed and I thought the communication was less than great.

My other problem was the mare had laid over at their place for a couple days (which was fine) but when they finished the last leg of the trip, this mare who was blanketed was hauled ina regular stock trailer...she had to be cold.... And I would NOT have approved this. It was winter still here and she was under lights to be bred.

While the prices were reasonable, and the service was ok, this company is not one I would probably use again.

Β Please do not use M and N Horse Transportation / North Carolina.Sold my finished barrel gelding thru BHW, I'm in OK, buyer is near Portland, Or. Used this company as they had a "great" website/ reviews.. They promise exp. Horsemen, stops every 3 hours etc etc... Not!! My geld left 3/30 and was was sent with hay, new halter / lead etc he arrived at buyers farm 4/2. She said he got off trailer and was trembling and was ribby.. So I had her send me pics as knew Charlie was a easy keeper , no hauling issues always ate/ drank etc... Driver gets out in shorts n FlipFlops! He wasn't like that when he picked up or that would have been a red flag! Well she asked them to get the hay I sent since mine was different from there grass hay and make sure he would eat hers. He said she didn't send any hay! WTH! She asked him then well how many times did you stop and rest, water , hay etc he said we didn't we drove straight thru all the pickups and dropoffs! So Charlie was on trailer the whole time! She said there were no way to have feed them as packed in all the horses were either! Then to put the icing on the cake, the helper/ other driver is outthere too and buyers hubby pulls up to see her new horse ( he is police officer) and in his car/uniform.. The helper guy starts sayingthe "f" word over n over and saying they gotta get outa there! Talk about a bad conscience!! You can see pics on my Facebook page: Sheri Lacey Padgett.It in furiates me to know that these people are doing this! I hope this will prevent someone else from using this company and going thru this awful ordeal!Website www.mandnhorsetransport.com

We move several weanlings across the country every fall as they sell private treaty off of our ranch. We have trusted our babies to travel from coast to coastΒ with Montana Express Horse Transport for 3 years now.

Amy Schimke

This is a good company they did have a s schedule change when they hauled for me but it was to take care of a horse that was stressing in the trailer and they called right away to explain and discuss the change in plan my colt arrived happy healthy and pretty gentle from allthe hourly handling

I used Dannie Gilder to ship our new mare from Virginia to New Mexico. I have no complaints whatsoever. I always got return calls within the hour. Our horse is huge (a Lipizzan/Friesian) at 17hh and quite long. They made accommodations whenever they could for her so she had more room to move. She left VA on a Thursday night and arrived in NM after a day in MO on Monday night. She was well hydrated and not nearly as spooky as I'd have expected her to be (she hadn't traveled far from the farm where she was raised). I recommend Dannie and crew, as our horse arrived in beautiful condition.
