A pleased customer

Somers,  CT.

I don't have a truck or trailer of my own, so I have always hired various other people to trailer for me. I hired Ken and Debbie for the first time in August, 2013 and they have done all my trailer needs ever since. They offer great rates, great peace of mind, and a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for both horse and owner!  Absolutely the best, thanks Ken and Debbie!!!

We needed to have a horse we were purchasing brought to his new home. We were not interested in a large company moving him with multiple horses. So I found Ken and Debbie on line and they were reliable, economical, and willing to work with our schedule as we needed to transport within a few days and we wanted to be there for the transport. Their trailer was in excelent condition and Ken drove cautiously with our precious cargo. I would definately use their services again.

Hi Grumpy & Debbie

Just a quick note to Thank You both for transporting my horse from PA. to CT.  It couldn't have gone any smoother. My horse came off your trailer so cool and calm after such a long ride and settled into his new home so quickly.  I just wanted you to know that I have transported horses many times in the past and never has it been this professional, puntual, and friendly!  The previous owners, the owners of my new barn, and myself, all plan on using you in the future.  You and Debbie both make everyone feel as if they have known you forever. I just wish that you guys had more time to hang around for supper and a game of cribbage!

Thanks again, and Happy Easter,


Hampton, CT.

I wanted to thank you for getting our new boy home safe and sound today. He has settled right in and is munching on his hay in his stall. I have hired several haulers in the past and I will say, by far, your service had the greatest communication, not to mention your reasonable price and personal treatment of our new boy. Thanks again! I will be sure to tell anyone that asks about your service!

Thanks Again!

A friend of mine purchased a horse and these nice folks offered to trailer him home for her. VERY knowledgable, kind hearted, and professional to work with. Trailer was very nicely kept, the horse was treated as if he was their own!  Highly reccomend!

Dear Ken (Grumpy) and Debbie

Thank you so much for bringing my horse home from New Jersey all the way to Maine. You have been a real pleasure to deal with, very helpful. You did such a good job taking care of her all the way. I would recomend you to anyone looking for a caring and proffesional equine transport who gives such good care to the horse. I really enjoyed talking with you both!



If you want excellent service from start to finish, Ken & Debbie are the way to go!  I used them to move my pony mare from Mass to Vermont and she arrived fresh as a daisy.  It is reassuring to know that they not only pay attention to detail, but they are very experienced with equines of all types.  They also have a camera to keep an eye on your precious cargo during transport.  They were on time and kept in touch. Their rates are amazingly low for such personalized service.  I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.  Can't say that about all of the transporters I have used over the years.




Northeast Equine Transportatation provided me with one of the most professional, friendly, and truly genuine experiences I have had to date amongst the horse industry.  Grumpy was so personable, reasonable, flexible, and accessible - he was able to accommodate a last minute schedule change with grace and ease, and was never more than a few rings away.  Never once did I feel I was being taken advantage of, or that me and my horse were simply names on a page.  We received great professional service from a true horse lover who is concerned just as much with the safe transport of horses as he is with helping horse owners all over New England.  I intend to reccomend NE Equine Transportation at every opportunity and encourage you to give them a call - you'll be glad you did! 

Thanks Grumpy  Be well, Sarah

Highly recommended to anyone that wants top notch, professional service

Our trip from NY to MA could not have gone any smoother!  Grumpy and Debbie were great to work with, both very knowledgeable and accommodating. The monitor was great to travel with, as it shows a clear picture of the passengers and the temperature inside the trailer.  Even being a hot day, he came off calm and cool!  A happy horse, I couldn't ask for more!

Thank you.

Good people, with good hearts

From my first contact with Northeast Equine Transportation in July 2014, Ken and Debbie were extremely responsive. All of my questions were answered, just the right amount of information was provided. Their kindness and professionalism was evident from the very beginning. Buying a horse can be very complicated, transportation is a big part of the process, Ken and Debbie allowed me to have comfort that this part of the transaction was something I did not have to worry about. When the big day came, all of the responsiveness, kindness, and professionalism was even more evident with an up-to-date trailer and safe transport. A big thank you Grumpy & Debbie!!


Wales, Ma.

To be honest I had no idea what I was in for today with the loading and transportation of my new llama pair.  I was instantly reassured after meeting you and seeing your modified trailer. You made what could have been a nerve wracking day run very smoothly.  Thank you again, and if I could ever be of service as a reference or other, it would be my pleasure.

Grumpy helped my wife and I tremendously when we had to escape from a really bad barn situation in a very short period of time. He showed up a couple of days earlier for us because things had changed last minute and I needed to get my horse to a different barn asap and Grumpy came to the rescue! Transportation was smooth for both me and my horse and his price was unbeatable! I can't thank you enough Grumpy for your services and I hope many blessings come your way for the incredible way you do business!!!

Well, I can't say enough positives! A few months ago we were in a jam, our truck was out of commission and we needed to get to a very important horse show finals. It was Friday evening and we needed to get there the next day. Well Grumpy (NET) was there to save the day! He was more than accommodating, professional, and reliable. We can't say enough how much we appreciated all he did for us. He also transported us the next day as well. Patient, friendly, and very reliable is this mom and pop company. Not to mention his expert driving skills. Forever grateful,

Grumpy & Debbie

Your hauling services are the only ones I have ever used before. You helped me pick up my first horse and were able to transport him safely! Your hauling services will be the only one I ever use. I truly and sincerely trust you with my horses on the road. You are safe, knowledgeable and extremely experienced! I can't say enough great things about you and Debbie!

This last trip we took was an extremely last minute trip and was wonderful! I spent about 8 hours with you and had a blast! You truly care for the horses and the customers!

I would hugely recommend Grumpy & Debbie to haul anyone's horses, anyday! They are the best!

Thank you for all you do!!

Exceptional Service

Grumpy promised my very nervous mother that he would get her mare the many hours to Indiana (from New Hampshire) safely, and that he and Debbie would take good care of her.  Not only did they deliver the Draft Pony, Luca, to her destination, they delivered on that promise to my mother.  It was extremely important to take care of my mother's concerns and put her mind at ease, and they did. They treated Luca as though she was their own. Putting the horse's needs above their own, Grumpy and Debbie listened to Luca's needs, and did what she needed - when she was ready to drive, they drove - when she needed a rest, they rested.  It was so sweet to see that.  They both have such kind souls and it is obvious they do what they do because they love it and they definately know what they are doing.  Don't let the nickname "Grumpy" fool you! ;)  Thank You.

High Quality Service

Debbie and Grumpy provide high quality service at a reasonable price. They are friendly, polite, always on time, and are great with the horses! Very calm and patient. The transport is clean airy and very roomy. The horses are driven safely to their destination and arrive happy and calm. I have used different horse transport over the years and they are by far the best !!

Excelent Service

Grumpy, I want to thank you once again for your excellent service and care during the transport of my horse. She was truly a rescue, and you transported this unknown mare with empathy and care from Pennsylvania to Maine. I appreciated your excellent communication prior to and during the transport. I was further impressed that you took the time to call me a couple of days later to inquire about her.  Although we had not met until you dropped her off at our home, I felt like I had family transporting and tending to her. I would highly recommend your service to anyone in need of horse transport. Thanks to your prompt service, one beautiful Lucky Lady was whisked away from a killpen to her new home, where she will be given a second chance. I don't know how you earned the name Grumpy - you are anything but!

Dear Grumpy & Crew

I needed to get my Skippy from MA to SC.  Did lots of research on equine transportation and chose "Grumpy".  I didn't want Skippy going on a trailer full of strange horses where he might not get personal care.    Grumpy has a wonderful trailer, well cared for and clean with lots of room for the horse.  His experience and thoughtfulness for Skippy showed thru out the ride, and it was a long one.  If I had to trailer him again I would for sure call Grumpy.  I can't say enough about his care and concern for my Skippy.  His crew of ladies were the best also.  They all seemed to feel the welfare of their passenger was most important.  Again, I can't say enough about Grumpy and his crew.  

Thanks so much to all of you.

Very pleased customers, Cindy & Skippy

Grumpy & Debbie

Grumpy you are the best!!! I know its been a while since you trailered for me, but I thought I should give credit where credit is due. You had the patience and understanding of a saint when I couldn't make up my mind on returning the pony that wasn't working out for my daughter, it was a incredible tough decision for me and you understood. You where so kind to my daughter each trip she came along and we both thank you. You made our special trip of going to pick up our forever horses even more special, thank you both, you are a class act all the way!
