Get Peace of Mind and the Competitive Edge with Professional Horse Transportation

Owning a horse or horses is a big responsibility. Whether you own horses to ride for recreational enjoyment or to breed, race or show, equine transportation is not something to take lightly. Professional horse transportation companies can offer you peace of mind with stress-free and safe horse shipping services.

For over 48 years, Sallee Horse Vans has earned its reputation every horse race or every time we ship a horse to a breeding shed or to a new home anywhere in the country. We operate a fleet of the safest, most up-to-date horse vans in the industry. We have our own maintenance staff, the same people who build our high-quality horse trailers. Many of our drivers – who are horsemen, too – have been with us for over 20 years. Each of our drivers receives extensive training and hold certifications.

Other than our staff, what sets Sallee Horse Vans apart is our 360-degree approach that ensures your horses arrive calm and safe. Our people “know” horses and what it takes to move them safely across town or from coast-to-coast. Our horse transport vans have video to constantly monitor your horses and communications equipment that keeps drivers in constant contact. Top-quality maintenance on our equipment ensures safety, comfort and on-time deliveries.
