Equo App

“What if there was an app where horse owners could connect with people drivers?" It is from this question that arosed the Equo project: an application allowing the owners to easily find the ideal driver for their horses, whether it is by plane, boat or truck.

Hi Linda,

This depends if your horse is gelding, mare or stallion.
Geldings stay in quarentine for 3 days once they arrive to the USA. You cannot see them but their stay in quaretine is short. They stay in their box for the 3 days.
Mares and Stallions stay 3 days in quarentine and then need to go to special quarentine facilities where you can, walk, lounge and ride.
Mares stay around 15 days and stallions around 36 days.

Thank your for your question

Hello Camden!
Yes you can feed them before a long flight. That's no problem. Try to give them enough time do process the food (specially grain) before the long trip starts. During the trip they will be fed Hay as well as water constantly so the horses stay happy and hydrated.

Hi Maddy,

This depends if your horse is a gelding, stallion or mare.
Mares do CEM quarentine at the facility you choose:
Cost is around $2,950.00 – Includes all required CEM testing. Coggins, Board. Grain, Unlimited Hay, Shavings And Use of The Facility. The average stay is 15 days.
Stallions:
Cost is around $12,950. 00 – Includes all required CEM testing, Coggins, Board, Grain, Unlimited Hay, Shavings And Use of The Facility. The average length of stay is 36 days.
Geldings stay for 2 to 3 days at airport facility before they are released.
There are many facilities around the USA so it all depends where your horse is flying into to determine where they will do their quaretine process.

Hi Lily,

All of our shippers are commercial shippers. This means that they are legal, insured and contantly audited by us to insure that they are up to standard to handle horses. These companies have been shipping horses for many years and their drivers are all horse people!
We have also created a horse knowledge test that only those that have experience with horses will know how to answer. Those that dont answer it correctly are not allowed onto our platform until they have demostrated enough knowledge

Hello Kessy,

Yes we can easily arrange for the layover on long trips. Our shippers are qualified to walk the horses but we certainly recommend for a groom to travel with the horses as they know them.

Hello Will,

Yes! we can group your horses with other horses to reduce the cost of shipping per horse. This is something we do on a daily basis!

Hello Kim,

We recommend for the foal to be strong enough to endure the stress the air travel has on horses. We recommend the foals to be at least 1 year old before they get on a plane.

Thank your for your question

Hello Charlotte,

Lots of water and electrolites are recommended after a long trip. We advice for owners to give the horses bran mash once they arrive at destination as this will stimulate the horse to eat and drink therefore getting them hydrated which is very important after a long trip.
We have some blogs on our website that you can read about!

Hello Cole,

Price varies depending on the type of stall you want your horse to travel in. There is single, double or box. 3 horses fit on one pallet on single, 2 on double and obviously 1 on box. Your horse would need to go on truck usually to amsterdam to then fly out. The cost per horse is on average $7,500.
