What a fabulous experience I had with Carousel Trails! Ian took the very best care of my three horses while taking them over 1000 miles across the country. This will be my one and only transporter in the future, long-distance or short!

One mare from CA to ID
The best transport experience I have had (compared to several, over the past 10 years). Ian was punctual, professional, took excellent care of my horse, and maintained terrific communication throughout the trip. I will definitely call him again and recommend him to friends.

This carrier I would highly recommend. He was timely, knowledgeable, and my horses arrived, in great shape, and disposition…. was nothing to unload them after such a trip. Their rates were good, and his equipment, is top of the line.

The shipper was excellent! Ian did great with my horse and kept me updated along the trip. The horse hadn’t been on a trailer in 15 years and he loaded like a champ for Ian! Showed up at destination in great shape and happy! Thank you so much for taking care of my boy!

Bullit
I can’t say enough of how well this trip went for Bullitt. Ian was prompt on pickup, kept me updated. He was available if I had a question but most importantly Bullitt was happy when he showed up after a 3-day journey from West Virginia to Arizona. Not groggy, tired or cranky like you would expect. Thanks, Ian, it was quite the emotional surprise for Rachel to see her Bullitt again. The reunion couldn’t have gone better, and you were an integral part of making this reunion memorable.

Hauled my horse across the country (Florida-California). He had food and water hanging during the trip and lots of shavings to a comfortable ride. Very nice man.

Ian is a fantastic guy, savvy, horseman, friendly, and providing updates on each leg of the trip. Horses were well cared for and our guy arrived in great condition and good spirits after 4 days on the road. Thank you so much, Ian.

Ian from Carousel Trails is a super professional shipper. I had a good feeling from the beginning. He did an awesome job with my mare, that had never been shipped before. I would recommend him anytime.

Nova
Ian was more than I could have ever expected from a shipper. He was professional, quick, and even kept in contact throughout the shipping. This was our first cross country shipping and I was so worried how my horse would fare. I shouldn’t have been worried. He showed up happy, fat, and in excellent condition. My big boy has mild arthritis and I was shocked that Nova did not have even a stiff step after unloading. If you are looking for a professional, kind, and helpful shipper Carousel Trails is hands down my choice.
