Pony Express is a single-client, charter service. We can move your horses across town, California, or surrounding states.
Pony Express is a single-client, personal hauler specializing in moving your horses across town, across California, or to surrounding states -- we are not a "Long Distance" hauler.
What we WILL do:
We will work with you to move your horses on your schedule.
We will provide a schedule of pick-up time and most importantly, a drop-off time window.
We will haul your horses door-to-door in one move.
We will stop every few hours (on long hauls) to allow your horses to rest and check on them.
We will use a closed-circuit video camera to monitor the horses during travel.
We will treat your horses like our own, taking the time necessary to load, feed, water and travel quietly and as stress-free as possible.
What we WILL NOT do:
We will not haul your animals to a holding facility.
We will not haul your horses, or any animals to auction.
Our minimum charge for a local move in the East Sacramento foothills area is $200.
Our charges pay for the driver's time, fuel, truck & trailer maintenance, and insurance. Some long distance haulers charge only for the "loaded mile" -- we charge for the round trip. After hauling your horse to your destination, I (almost) never have a horse for the return trip back to my ranch. Our prices reflect our ability to be flexible and haul on very short notice. Our prices also reflect the size of the trailer and the weight of the horses -- one small horse costs less to move than four large horses.
We have a one ton truck and two trailers; a two-horse slant load Circle-J, bumper-pull, with locking tack room & a four horse slant load Logan, gooseneck, with a larger locking changing room. Both trailers are made of steel, have thick rubber mats, lots of screened windows, overhead venting, and carry water.
