Shipping a horse can be both a very scary and expensive adventure. Here at K and M Horses we ship all over the United States, Canada, and Mexico. When the necessary precautions are taken and you work with the right people shipping a horse can be a fun and enjoyable experience. I have taken the time to list some of the important factors in shipping a horse and have provided you with the means to feel good about your decision to ship.
