What Our Clients Have to Say...
MG was so great with my babies. Mervin and Ephraim kept me updated throughout the whole trip from Kentucky to Arizona. They were well cared for and I will definitely use them again.
Very friendly and just a great transport all around. Did a great job on such a short notice

Thanks for bringing my colt to me. Couldn't have asked for it to go any smoother. My 4 year old arrived to his new home in great shape. Didn't loose an ounce of weight!! Appreciated having him in a box stall and he even put a blanket on him when the temperatures dropped in the mountains.
Would not trust my boy with anyone else,reasonable, let's u know what's going on,clean
Thank you so very much for the EXCELLENT care of my horse on his long journey!! Constant updates with pics and arrived in amazing time!! I will recommend you to all I know!! You are in my opinion thel best of the best!! THANK YOU!!
I am so glad to have found MG Horse Transport! I can not say enough about Mervin's excellent service. We have never shipped a horse before and were very nervous about the process. The trip was going from Southern California to Iowa and most shippers I contacted did not give me the time of day, since the destination is so far out of the way for the most common routes. Luckily I found MG on the internet. From the first time I spoke with Mervin he has been excellent about communication. Timing and pricing were also perfect. When Mervin arrived at the pick up location I was very impressed with his professionalism, yet also thoughtfulness and the way he truly cares about his passengers. Throughout the trip he kept in touch with me, sending updates and pictures of my horse, which really helped to put my mind at ease.
Delivery took place this morning and my horse looks like he has not lost an ounce during transport and he is very relaxed and happy.
If you are looking for a transport company that doesn't treat your animal like a number but really cares, please use MG Horse Transport. My experience could not have been better! Thank you so much Mervin!!!

Mg was amazing. I moved from California to Maine which was pretty much as far as you could go across the country. I called quite a few places and every single one was going to transfer them to different trucks and different drivers at least twice. One of the big companies actually told me they would meet me at the Walmart parking lot in Portland Maine (a huge city) and I could take them home from there (an hour further north). Seriously? Mervin cared about the horses and you could tell. He assured me he would stay with them the whole time and he did. He told me he would send me pictures every night and he did. Every promise he gave us he delivered. They arrived on time and as healthy and happy as the day they got on the truck. I was a nervous wreck and he was understanding and gave us his personal cell number so we could call anytime. I was seriously impressed. Anyone who has transported horses before even a small distance knows this is not the norm. Mg is the only transport company I will ever use or recommend. Super great company and person.
We used MG Horse Transport several years ago to transport our two new pregnant Shetland/Minis from back east to the Northwest. Mervin did an excellent job in caring for them and keeping us updated the entire time they were in transport. It is great when you can rely on your horses being picked up by one transport and that same transport delivering them to the final destination. Mervin is very concerned about his passengers. We are using him again as we need another transport done and I couldn't get our reservations into him quick enough. I recommend him to everyone when I hear they are looking for a horse to be hauled. His trailer is clean and he sends pictures of the horses so you can see how they are doing on the trip. He sends you reports along the way. I can not give Mervin any higher recommendations as we feel he is the BEST!
Hyde Away Ranch
Arrived on time, handled horse gently, and drove slowly and carefully. The trailer was clean and had a generous amount of shavings. Horse arrived happy and healthy, and every detail was handled with extreme competence and care. Would recommend to anyone who worries about the safety of their horse during transport- everything was great. Thank you for taking care of my baby. 🙂
Let me preface this by saying that I am an obsessive worrier when it comes to my horses, and I had never shipped a horse over a long distance. I found MG Horse Transport by chance on Facebook and I could not be happier with the entire experience. I had a ton of questions before the day of her trip and Mervin answered all of them extensively and in a timely manner. He was professional, kind and wonderful to work with. His truck and trailer were immaculate…I was really impressed. I had absolutely NO worries when Mervin pulled away with my horse, which coming from me says a lot. He stayed in constant communication with me throughout the 24hrs of her trip and even sent me pictures. I was not there for her to be dropped off, but my friends and family who helped also had nothing but great things to say. My horse was looking healthy, happy, and calm when she arrived. I will use him for any future hauling needs and recommend him to everyone I know. Thank you so much, Mervin!!! 🙂
We had a great experience with MG transport. This was our first horse transport so we had no idea of what to expect. Mervin was very responsive to all of my questions. He always responded promptly as well. His team seemed compassionate and caring toward the horses.We received daily texts and photos as our horse traveled from Utah to Maryland. He arrived earlier than expected and kept us informed the whole way. In addition to his amazing customer service his prices were very competitive. Although I have no prior experience with transport, both barns (pick up and drop off) are experienced and were very impressed with MG. I would highly recommend! Thank you MG and Mervin for bringing Quinton home safely!
Thank you much for the care you took in delivering a gelding I purchased in Tennessee to Texas. Zeus arrived in great condition happy and healthy after a 48 hour trip! We are very grateful and appreciate of the wonderful care he received and the updates that were given throughout the trip!
MG was amazing. He made sure my horse was happy and content during his travels to South Carolina. He kept me and my mom up to date on everything and sent plenty of photos. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to transporting their horse
Just had a big gelding hauled from Iowa to Utah. Great experience and communication was key. Excellent and professional! Will definitely be using this hauler again. Actually already booked another long haul. You won't be disappointed! Respectfully, Shana Burroughs
Great experience! Thank you for taking care of Andy's special needs! I will definitely use them in the future
Excellent hauling company! They kept communication from the day the contract was signed through the day of delivery. It was a long trip from WY to TN for a sure footed older brood mare, she arrived bright eyed in great shape.Couldn't ask for a better hauler!
Great Service very professional, horses treated with excellent care.
Professional, friendly and caring. Would recommend Mervin to anyone. Brought Zander from Lexington to Mississippi. He was safe and happy when he arrived. Thank you Mervin.
Thank you MG Transport you brought me my new guy from KY to NC. You were wonderful to work with at last minute too!! Very honest and very helpful. God Bless Mervin.
Very professional and wonderful communication. I cannot say enough good about them. Highly recommended. I have used them multiple times and horses always arrive in excellent condition.

Exceptional service and very professional! My horse was taken care of all the way from Kentucky to Washington state. I got daily updates on him with pictures. He got his medicine daily and had hay and water free choice the whole way here. The driver is safe and knows exactly what he is doing. This was our first time using MG and we will be returning customers!
Great experience shipping one of our horses!
Always quick response and great with updates, we can highly recommend MG Horse Transport.

MG moved my draft cross horse from Arkansas to San Diego. Great service. She arrived healthy and happy. Thank you!

I really can't say enough about this Transport service, Mervin was so kind & reassuring to me. I had 3 horses I needed moved to a new home we bought, a 30yr old that this would be his 5th time in a trailer & last time 13yrs when brought here that I've had 29yrs. Next a 28yr old that I had her mother, & this would be her 4th time in a trailer. Last my 18yr old that I only know last 8 years on. When Peter the driver arrived we found out that the horses needed to walk to the trailer & when he tried to take just one the other 2 went nuts so he came back in & we took all 3 at once. My mare went right in but the boys thought the trailer was from hell & wouldn't go in. Peter took his time "over an hr" & got them all in. They arrived at new home without a mark. Even with them going only 150 miles I got a progress report that they were riding well. From the bottom of my heart I can't thank these 2 enough for transporting my babies safely & their kindness to an worrying old lady.....

Outstanding service . On time and under budget. Horse arrived happy and health. Would definitely use again and already recommended to friends.
MG transported my horse from Oregon to Florida on September 25 2017. My horse is a 1.5 year old that never transported before, and Mervin took the time to talk to me about the best way to transport, length of travel, amount of stops etc. I got a box stall for him so he had plenty of room for the journey. Peter picked him up in Oregon and the breeder was impressed by his horsemanship. He sent me pictures before loading that I had requested, and pictures after loading. Everyday he sent me an update with a picture. They stopped every night and had a 1 day lay over in Kentucky so that Vance could rest fully before Mervin delivered him to me in Sarasota, Florida. He walked off the trailer like nothing important was going on. He was well rested, calm and in great shape. I don't think he even lost any weight! MG was great- both Peter and Mervin were great at handling Vance- their communication and daily updates were awesome and really kept me from getting anxious about the long trip. I definitely recommend these guys to anyone who needs transport. I just can't say enough good things about them!
Terrific transporter, would definitely use again if need arose. Highly recommend
I had a lovely little mare shipped from KY to VA the week before Christmas. The traffic was horrific. Mervin kept me informed and texted pictures of her along the way. He arrived at the base of our drive and was courteous and my new little horse looked relaxed and fabulous. We would absolutely use Mervin again. Outstanding experience, a clean, spacious, new and lovely rig.

Mg transport was amazing. Sold my 8 year old rocky mountain gelding (which was my baby) to a wonderful lady all the way in maine. We are all the way in kentucky, a long drive for sure. But mg tansport kept in contact with both myself & the buyer sending pictures & texting updates. They are the best around, very professional & also supportive when i broke down crying before loading him. I couldnt thank them hardly enough for getting my boy to his new home safe & sound!!! Will be using them again if i ever need a shipper!!

Excellent service, very professional. We were quite nervous about our huge move from PA to CA with five horses, because two horses had never been off our farm or on a trailer (age 12). The other three hadn't been on a trailer in years. After talking at length with Mervin, I felt we'd found someone who understood our situation and able to handle it.
Mervin picked the horses up in PA as scheduled, worked with them so they were comfortable in their stall locations and delivered them safely to our new CA location four days later. He made an extra effort to keep the trip as short as possible, without stressing the horses, not only because they of their inexperience in being trailed, but also because of the extreme heat wave going on west coast at that time.
Mervin stayed in touch with us throughout the trip. It was good to hear from him each day, as we were very concerned how they would handle such a long haul. All five were in good spirits upon arrival and have quickly acclimated to their new environment.
I would definitely use and recommend MG Transport.
