    Shipping a horse

    Not sure where to put this, so mods feel free to move it if you want. I'm in the NW Houston area and just bought a horse that will need to be shipped from the Dallas area. I was going to use Equine Express, but the problem is that a semi will not fit into either farm (the one he is leaving or the one he will be being delivered to). So I'm kinda stuck with what to do. Equine Express said they can load and unload on the main road but neither the seller or I am comfortable with this. And as far as using someone private, I feel bad asking someone to go that far (they would be paid, but still) and I would want the person to have full insurance, which some do not. It's kinda of a long shot but if anyone knows any farms (with the proper insurance) in my area that will be making a trip to Dallas for a horse on the weekend of the 21st and has an open spot let me know. Or if anyone has dealt with a similar situation, could you please let me know what you did?

    Also the horse is a big Oldenburg gelding, so he's going to need a WB sized trailer.

    There should be some companies in that area that regularly ship quarter racers. They would have the equipment, bonding, etc. Could have the time, this time of year.

    I thought about that but I can't find any info online. I thought about maybe contacting someone at my local racetrack, but I'm assuming you would have to talk to individual trainers for that and I have no clue on how to get in contact with them

    May also try someone on backstretch that works in that, don't really know just throwing ideas. Maybe some of the breeding farms could give names of who they use or sees shipping mares in.

    I found these listings for transport companies based in Texas- looks like a number of them have smaller horse trailers.
