Harness racing reached the early zenith of its popularity in the late 1800s, with the establishment of a Grand Circuit of major fairs. The sport sharply declined in popularity after 1900, as the automobile replaced the horse and the United States became more urbanized. In 1940, however, Roosevelt Raceway in New York introduced harness racing under the lights with pari-mutuel betting. This innovation sparked a rebirth of harness racing, and today its number of tracks and number of annual races exceed those of Thoroughbred racing. The sport is also popular in most European countries, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.

I’ve used Equine Express twice now. Both times the service was EXCELLENT. Lots of communication, the horses were picked up and dropped off when quoted. My horse arrive relaxed and in excellent condition. The first time I used them I moved 3 horses from AZ to Northern CA, one of which was my elderly gelding, the drivers were patient with him and he looked completely un-phased by the whole trip when he arrived. This was not the case when he was shipped to AZ (by a different company) a few years earlier. The second time I shipped 2 mares from CA to KY one of which was a rescued mare that hasn’t been handled a lot and definitely not shipped cross country. Again, they were in excellent condition when they arrived. Equine Express will now officially be my go to for equine transportation.

I would like to sincerely thank you for your help in transporting my 4 horses across the country. We move about every 2-4 years and this was my first experience with Equine Express.The staff was extremely helpful and patient with me as I planned the trip from New Mexico to Ohio. My last experience with another hauler was a bit traumatic for all so I was very hesitant and had lots of questions.
