I did want to compliment you and your company on awesome service last time shipping my horse, Goose, out to Alberta! I was amazed at how the guys knew how to work with the horses! Also, they watched him interact with the horse across from him... even though nothin really bad is likely to happen they made sure they would get along! And when my kitties were hopping onto their trailer and bales and gave them a pet and gently placed them on the ground, wow! They aren't even at my place to care about my kitties and yet were so sweet to them :) It made my day to see these tough guys gently putting my kitties on the ground lol!
Anyways, I do appreciate your company! There needs to be more good people and shippers out there...I'll definitely keep recommending your company!

I have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say about Elliott Equine. This was my first hauling experience and I will never use anyone else ever again -- they are the best in the business in my opinion, and I will refer them anyone and everyone who asks for a hauler. They brought my mare to me from Jenner, AB, Canada. Went and got her from the seller's house. Took wonderful care of her, took her to not one, but two vets, so that she could have everything done - as less traumatic as possible. It didn't matter any time of the day or night, I could call or text and they would reassure me everything was okay. Dave is a wonderful man, made Lexi feel completely comfortable and even got her to see that not all humans are bad. They went above and beyond their job and I can not thank them enough for everything they have done for me and for Lexi. [SHIPPING NOTES: Picked up this 4 yr old wild/not handled. The sellers put her in a cow squeeze to get a halter on. Could not get a needle in to draw blood for coggins at the first vets! When delivered, she was gentled and leading off the trailer.]
I purchased a pregnant mare in Idaho and had Elliott Equine transport her to Canada for me. The process was easy, fast and reliable. They took very good care of my pregnant mare and she arrived in good shape. The hauling costs were reasonable and I'm happy my new girl was in a box stall in an air ride trailer. Thanks for your helpful and prompt service!
This has been by far the best horse hauling experience i have had!! I felt like all of the details and stresses were looked after for me. This is the only company i will use and recommend to my family and friends. Thank you!

Thank you very much Elliott Equine Transport for delivering my Appaloosa stallion safely. Your transport services were very fast, reasonably priced and it was easy to get in contact with you throughout the haul to get updates on my horse. And my stallion arrived looking happy, healthy and well cared for! You were a pleasure to deal with, I will definitely use your services again if I import another horse from USA to Canada and will recommend you to my friends.

Recently my husband shipped a load of horses from Vernon to Fort Erie with your company. Not only did you quote us a reasonable price, the care our horses received with you was exemplary. Thank you so very much for providing such wonderful service. We will always ship with your company.

Once again an excellent job of transporting horses. The cutting horse mare I bought in Ft. Worth at the 2009 NCHA Summer Spectacular Show and Sale arrived in great shape. Your professionalism and care provided the horses is greatly appreciated. I'll continue to recommend you to all horse people wanting the best care for their horses in transit.
Tink is doing awesome. Thanks again for bringing her to me safe and sound. I honestly don't think I would ever even consider another hauler after having you transport her to me. You ran into a lot of inclement weather and closed roads and problems out of your control on that trip, and even though it took longer than it should have to get her home I know you took your time because you put the safety of your cargo first and foremost. I was totally impressed with her condition when I walked her off the trailer that night. She suffered no weight loss nor any stresses sometimes related with long hauls. First class all the way pretty much sums it up. If I have one complaint, it would be that you wouldn't stick around and spend the night so we could visit...but you had a another customer down the road waiting for the other horse on the trailer. You run a top notch, first rate business.

We would like to say thank you for an outstanding job safely transporting our
mare from Kentucky to her new home here in Alberta.
We will use Elliott Equine Transportation again in the future!
Thanks for the great communication & a positive,stress free experience.
Highly Recommended! We will pass on your info to anyone we know looking for
safe, efficient transport for their horses.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for delivering our 5 month old colt safely and soundly to his new home. He arrived in absolutely great shape and without showing the slightest concern or stress. Your extra efforts go beyond what I ever expected. Due to the terrible winter condition of our roads coming up to our farm, your time and care to walk us in under the guidance of your own trusted horse was more than I could ever hope for. Any other shipper might have just let us off the truck and left us to struggle the last stretch home. As I am a first time nervous "Mom", you set my heart at ease from the first phone call, all the check ups throughout the trip, to the follow-up the next day. You were extremely easy to get a hold of and communication was excellent! I felt your sensitivity in handling our colt was true horsemanship and you have established the groundwork for easy trailering from here on in. You are an amazing woman with a heart of gold and I won't hesitate a moment to call you for our next trip!
I want to thank you so much for getting my boys home to me safe and sound and for having the patience to deal with an "over the top" "MOM". lol. You put me at ease each and every time I had concerns, and dealt with unforseen circumstances a few times that I was having "panic attacks" over. Tony did a great job getting Gitano home....he is pleasant and easy to talk to. If I ever have to do this again (God forbid!), it will be with you. I appreciate, so much, you and your staff. Thank you!
Thank you for delivering my gelding to the Fargo area. I know it was a short trip with not a lot of information or time to figure it out. You guys did a great job! I really appreciate how you call before pickup and after delivery. That put my mind more at ease. The lady that was there to greet you guys called me last night and said everything went great and my horse arrived in great shape! Thank you so much for the great experience! It was great to see that when you stopped you gave the horses more hay and all the water that they wanted. I could see the passion you had for your job and dealing with horses.
I hope this finds the two of you as cheerful and smiley as you were the day you dropped Foxy off! Just a note to express my heartfelt thanks for having transported Foxy from Missouri to Saskatchewan for me. You obviously took good care of her during the trip as evidenced by her relaxed demeanor when she stepped off the trailer. I can tell that the two of you truly care about the horses that you haul and that you do your utmost to keep them as comfortable as possible during transport. If I purchase another horse that requires transport, you will be my first choice for transport. And if I know anyone else who requires transportation for their horses, I will forward your name to them! Your knowledge about the paperwork process, etc. made things much easier for me. Thanks for the patience you displayed in responding to my many questions!
Just a note of thanks to Kim Elliott and her knowledgeable staff of Elliott Equine Transport for the handling of the importation of our horses from Texas, Kentucky and PA to our home in Canada. Our horses have arrived looking like they were heading off to a show! The purchase of our horses has been a big undertaking for us as small breeders, and with help from our transport company we have now fulfilled our dream of having purebred Australian Stock Horse impact mares and Stallion to start our breeding program of the Australian Stock Horse breed in Canada. The whole importation procedure was as smooth as silk, thanks to Elliott transport.
The transport of our prospects is significant to us as their experiences they have in the transport process have a marked effect on their future. We were able to commence our work with our horses the day after they arrived at our home.
My thanks to you and your team for this, a decision to transport horses long distances is not taken lightly and Elliott Equine Transport made it as simple and as stress free as possible. Thank you again for you help to keep our journey with our horses an enjoyable one.
