A few months ago I had used a different hauler and had not been happy about any part of the trip or the condition of my horse when she arrived. My trainer suggested I call Debbie at DDP High Desert Transport.
What a HUGE difference! Debbie has now hauled horses on two separate trips and I could not have been more pleased. From an old mare to one we have nicknamed “Squirrely” and a yearling colt tht had not been handled, Debbie handled them all with the utmost care. She takes her time with each horse never rushing them or using harsh measures as the other haulers had done. Each horse is treated as if it was Debbie’s own.
And knowledgable? Debbie has a lifetime of experience with horses and horse medicine. If there is any question about the horse’s health Debbie is one the phone with the vet and the owner.
Not only do I use Debbie, but I have called numerous people in the horse business to recommend DDP High Desert Transport. Not only is your horse in the best of hands but Debbie makes sure to update you daily (or more often!) on your horse. You do not get that kind of care anywhere else.

Our Nez Perce horses, Kewx Kewx, the pregnant brood mare, and Kaya the yearling, arrived in awesome shape. They were calm and stood quietly when unloaded. We are so pleased with how great they looked and Matt did an awesome job with them. Thanks so much for providing exceptional hauling services. The long trip from Idaho did not seem to phase them and although both are green to handling they took everything in stride. Any horse owner is of course nervous about hauling such a long distance, but having contact and hearing how well they were doing helped a lot. Seeing them on arrival being so calm and looking so good is a testament to the quality of service you are providing. We will not hesitant to refer any shipping needs we have you way.

Hello Danny and Debbie, you don’t know me, yet! I just wanted to thank you for having such a kind and caring driver in Matthew , he delivered our new horse Prince Charming (definately going to give him a new name) safe and sound to us here in California, stayed in touch with me along the route and gave me his number in case I was worried, he was such a lovely man. We will soon be moving to Ramona a very horsey community, and if he or any of your drivers should ever be in need of a place to stay or need to lay over for any reason, we would be very pleased to help out, we will have a nice big barn, with clean airy stalls and safe fencing in the pastures, so if there’s an emergency, please keep us in mind, we sincerely mean this, it’s not just an empty promise, a company that cares as much as you obviously do is a pleasure to do business with.
I will definately be using your services again, and will recommend you to my friends.
Sincerely, Suzanne Porter
Hi Deb. Just wanted to let you know how happy and relieved I am that my horse made it to CA. He did not just make it, he was in great shape and good spirits. Your son Matt is an angel with the horses he transports. I could tell that he really cares about them. The communication during the trip was excellent, I felt like I knew Matt by the time he arrived since we had chatted on the phone during the trip. I will definitely spread the word about the excellent service that you provide and the great care for the horses you transport. Thank you and God bless. Diane in CA.
Moving one’s horse across this great country is not something one does every day. So, I was more than a bit nervous when I was planning the move. But I could have saved myself a lot of worries, DDP High Desert Ranch lived up totally to all my expectations thanks to your organization and especially thanks to the dedication of Matthew. During the 10 day journey Matthew took my calls every day to update me on the condition of Star and the progress of the transportation. He was immensely patient with the horse and with its owner.
Star arrived at his destination in impeccable state, safe and sound in every aspect. I could not be happier. Thank you for your service and pass on my warmest regards to Matthew.
Attached are a picture of Matthew and of Star at the arrival of his new home.
Deb and Dan were so great. They transported my mare and her 4 month old filly from Oregon to Colorado with such care. They both arrived in perfect condition and Deb was wonderful throughout the transport process keeping me up to date. I would use them again in a heartbeat and certainly recommend their services. Thanks so much!

Please choose Deb & Dan! What a pleasant surprise! The horses actually gained weight during the transport, arrived as scheduled, & without injury. Transporters are beautiful people with a true love for the animals they move (& the nervous mommies waiting). This transport exceeded my expectations with the ease, respect, kindness, & well-thought-out advice thru-out; knowledgeable & experienced transporters, with a follow-up call after delivery. Love these people!

Deb and Dan did a great job with my two boys. I shipped a 7 year old gelding and a 2 year old stallion. Both were very well taken care of and seemed to be more comfortable with the trailer after than they did before. They handled my horses with extreme care and handled the other clients’ horses with the same love and care. I would recommend them to anyone and would use them again. Very kind and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure! Melanie Bortz – 607-229-7029 – email@example.com
Having someone else haul your horse for over 600 miles for the first time is always a nerve-racking experience, but no matter how often I, the worried mother, called they were always happy to talk to me and tell me how Spinner was doing and to assure me that everything was okay. He arrived well fed, watered, and completely calm and happy. I was very impressed with the level of attention and would highly recommend them to any other horse parents as very capable and compassionate shippers!

Deb & Danny were wonderful to work with. They stayed in contact through the whole trip, were always available & JJ arrived in Fla in great condition. I will definately be using them again & highly recommend them! First class all around & they love their job & the horses.

Debbie and Danny were the best!! The communication was second to none! You could call them anytime, and they would answer. Professional, knowledgeable, friendly, honest, equipment was top notch. They transported our very pregnant mare and took GREAT care of her. She arrived at her new home in perfect condition. We could not be more happy, and we highly recommend Danny and Debbie!!
Debbie and Dan were both so wonderful and made my first experience using a professional hauler great!! They will be the only hauler I will use in the future and I would highly recommend them to any one with absolute confidence. Thanks for everything Debbie!!!!
Hello Danny and Debbie, Sorry for the delay with our feedback, we have been out of town since Monday. We got your message, and placed the feedback ASAP. THANK YOU so much for your wonderful service.

Totally Fantastic haulers! Debbie and Dan took fantastic care of Ali, and he came off the trailer like a dream! I plan to use them again if i ever need to have another horse hauled. Thanks so much!
We can highly recommend Deb Price and DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC. Here is our story and the specifics of our experience.
We hired Deb Price and DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC to move our 26 year old Paint mare from Bend, OR to Canton, NC. This was going to be a long trip (almost 3000 miles) and my old horse, Penny, has some health issues. She has Cushings disease, is arthritic, prone to having hoof problems, and her weight was not optimal at the time I needed her shipped. What a relief that Deb Price was who we chose for this transport. We agreed to ship the old mare in a box stall. From there Deb took care of everything with great professionalism and expert horse handling. She ensured that the mare was eating properly and hydrated, exercised outside regularly, medicine given everyday on a schedule, feet cleaned, not too hot and not too cold. She even called our vet to discuss changing feed to help the mare gain some weight during her 9 day ride cross country. Penny horse got so used to the drill that, after a turnout, she would trot over and load herself on the trailer when it was time to roll. A horse that is getting a bad ride down the road just won’t do that; but Penny was getting a very good and careful ride. When the old mare arrived in Canton, NC she came off the trailer sound and in great shape. She even gained some weight along the way and had no ribs showing. If you need a horse moved long distance, Deb is the gal to talk with. Her prices are more than competitive, but the real deal is how she handles the care of your horse from the beginning to end of the journey. We can recommend, without reservation, Deb Price and DDP High Desert Equine Transport, LLC.

Thank You So Much! Awesome experience! The stable manager in SC said you were the best hauler he has met in over 30 years of owning a stable. Ebony is settled in and doing quite well. Thanks again and I will recommend you to my friends faced with changing duty stations. Thanks,

Lovely couple to do business with. EXTREMELY reasonable rate. . .colt arrived in a timely fashion even through a snow storm. . .they were very cautious. Would highly recommend them!
Debbie, Thank you so much for your time and patience when you picked up Hope!! I really appreciate your caring for all of the horses you had. I was so impressed and as you know, I had just had a bad (almost bad) experience with a hauler. I will certainly use or recommend you for any hauling needs I have in the future. I hope Miss Hope was good for you for the haul!! Please contact me if you ever need anyplace to layover or just dump if you need to!! Thanks again!!

I absolutely picked the best shipper to ship my weanling from Texas to NC. Debbie did a wonderful job taking care of my colt. He arrived happy and healthy. Her trailer was very clean, with clean bedding. Debbie stayed in contact with me the entire trip giving me updates on her location and how my colt was doing. I would recommend this shipper to anyone needing a horse shipped. I can’t say enough good things about this shipper, so do not hesitate to use them.
A-M-A-Z-I-N-G shipper! She was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, communicative, and friendly. Debbie not only knows shipping, she knows horses as well and I completely trust her to haul. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs an animal hauled. I would ship again with her in a heartbeat. Answered every call/email promptly, handled the horse with kindness and respect, picked up and delivered exactly on time, straightforward and honest, very friendly. INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!
Dan and Deb Price are the sweetest people. They got my horse to me safe and sound. Not once did I ever feel like I had anything to worry about. I felt very comfortable knowing they were not in a big hurry to get my horse moved. They were very sweet and kept me updated the entire time. If I ever need a shipper again I will only use Dan and Deb Price. They’re the best!!
Debbie was fantastic. She responded right away, kept me posted on the horses progress and health status. They were well fed & watered. We highly recommend Debbie and Danny for any of your transport needs. Very kind, knowledgeable and ethical folks- you and your critters will enjoy them!
Debbie was extremely caring for Cody during the long trip and got him to Florida in excellent health and good spirits. She will be an easy recommendation to anyone who asks me about horse movers.
I couldn’t have been happier with the services Debbie and Dan provided for me! My horse arrived at his destination safe and sound and was clearly happy with the way his journey went. If I ever need to transport him again, I’m definitely going to give Debbie and Dan another call!
What a wonderful experience! Whenever I look to transport a horse I’ll look to Debbie and Dan first. Their attention to detail is unparalleled (I didn’t realize that my young filly should have a box stall, they gave her one anyway!) Debbie is so easy to work with, so “customer service” oriented – she treated my filly as though it was hers. I have nothing but glowing comments about how they operate their business, and have displayed their business cards at my local equine shop – wonderful people!
Ruben and I are thrilled with the wonderful service you provided to us and our new filly, Missy. From my first phone conversation with you to her delivery on Saturday, you have been nothing but professional and helpful. I really appreciated being kept up to date on her status once she was on your truck and I really appreciate the care you gave her. She came to us in fantastic condition with no fussing at all. Debbie, you are a doll and I am so glad to have met you. Please feel free to use my name anytime you need a reference. I will highly recommend you for transporting any of our animals or for anyone else’s. You came to us through a recommendation and I’m so glad you did. Thanks again for your care and attention to our little girl. You go over and beyond what anyone else would do.
