Wild Turkey Farm has been using American Horse Transport for several years now, and when it is time for a horse to be hauled, whether it is a mare and foal or a stallion anywhere in the US, my first call is always to American Horse Transport.  Reliable, friendly, excellent communication and foremost, the horse’s welfare is always at the top of their priorities.

I use American Horse Transport on a regular basis to transport my horses long distances. American is always very professional and easy to communicate with, and they are willing to do extra things like give UlcerGard. My horses always arrive at their destination in excellent condition. I couldn’t be happier with American!

I wanted to send you a Thank You!, to you and your drivers, for delivering Laudi safely and timely to me!  I was very impressed with how you all handled communication every step of the way and took good care of my horse during his travel. The trailer was great for such a big horse and I could see he travelled comfortably.  I would definitely use AHT again!
