On time, all the time! Could not be more pleased.

Dan handled our 5 "Prima Donna" horses in a kind and professional manner. It was a 1700 mile trip, door to door, and Dan called us each evening to report on the status of our "kids" and let us know that they were traveling well. We have one horse that does not load easily and Dan handled him superbly. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone. His kind attention to our horse's needs was much appreciated and his rig is superior. MANY THANKS!!!!

Dan has hauled horses for me for the past 4 years. His service is the BEST! I have never had one problem and every horse arrives in perfect condition. He is always on time, exactly when he says he will be here. He has a beautiful truck and trailer, and takes extremely good care of the horses.

I was a Realtor trying to find transport for my client from Southern California to Northern California. I felt comfortable enough from talking to him to recommend my client to hire Dan. Boy I couldn't have scored better!! Clean rig...I mean CLEAN! (actually jealous of his rig!) And hay for the horses too! Wow! Dan was so patient with horses that weren't as impressed with his trailer as I was. All got safe and sound to their destination. I couldn't recommend him more!! I have personally hauled horses all over California and I am very uncomfortable even thinking about someone else hauling my horses. But I would put my horses on Dan's trailer and not even worry one bit. THANK YOU DAN!!! YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

I was lucky enough to have found Dan through a trainer at my barn, in Los Angeles, who needed two of her horses transported to Oregon. When she told me about Dan's immaculate rig, on time service and fair pricing, I stopped shopping for my upcoming transportation needs.

Dan just transported my 20 year old mare from Los Angeles to our new home in Las Vegas. He shipped her in an immaculate box stall full of shavings. Dan was on time for her pick up in Los Angeles, stopped half way through the ride to check on her and delivered her to Las Vegas almost to the minute he said he would.

Dan's price was the same as the large, long haul transport companies who can't give you an exact pick up date or provide you with point to point travel. I don't know why anyone would use one of those big haulers when you and your horse can have personalized service at a very fair price.

I would highly recommend Dan to anyone who needs to transport their horse.

Highly recommended! Our three horses were hauled from Carson City, Nevada to Tehachapi, California in September, 2010. During our move, Dan was so kind and caring, he even took time to help us load our pipe stalls. He was very patient loading our reluctant horses in his clean horse trailer, and he kept in touch with us during the transport. Our moving van was very slow, so he got to our new home with our horses a few hours before we did. He was kind enough to unload our horses and give them a good drink of water before he left. Such a wonderful feeling he left us with! We didn't have to worry about a thing. He is dedicated, knowledgeable, trustworthy and dependable. We are so lucky to have him as our horse transporter. We would highly recommend him and we will call upon him again. We thank him so very much!

I was fortunate enough to have contacted Dan Yocum. He is a true horseman and as far as my experience with Dan, it couldn't have been better. He arrived on-time to the pick up location and when we walked out to his spotless, eat off the floor, air-ride trailer, he had brand new shavings on the floor of the trailer that any horse would love, even I felt like I would like to go in! Hay was in the hay bags, filled to the brim and my horse had a huge box stall. He couldn't wait to walk in!

Dan kept in touch with me the whole trip. If I wasn't able to reach him, he called as soon as he got my message. He also kept in touch with the person on the other end who he was delivering my horse to.

Upon his arrival at the destination he had to wait forty-five minutes for the people to come and get my horse since there was no longer a road. Dan had explained to me that while he was waiting he got to know my horse and enjoyed his company, didn't complain, just told me what a nice horse I had. I felt my horse couldn't have had better care if I had hauled him myself. In fact, I know he got better care with Dan. Dan is a man that really cares about horses and the owner's feelings.

If I should need someone to haul my horse five miles or five hundred miles I would call Dan. You can be assured your horse will arrive in the same condition as when he left. I have never met a hauler (Dan is not just a hauler) that cares the way Dan does and, most likely never will.

Thank you Dan for being so kind and taking such good care of my horse.

We live in Nevada and have hired Dan Yocum to transport our Thoroughbred horses on a number of occasions. Dan is not only a knowledgeable horseman, but also possesses a natural calmness and caring demeanor that sets our minds at ease. He treated our horses as if they were his own. Dan's trailer is immaculate and large enough to accomodate 17+ hand horses in comfort. We were very pleased we made the choice to hire Dan versus a stock carrier. Each of our horses got the individual attention they needed and arrived safe, sound, and on time. We would not hesitate to recommend Dan Yocum to anyone needing horse transportation. He is truly a caring professional.

In June, 2009, my horse, Sweet Prince William was shipped from northwestern New Mexico to his new home near Dallas, Texas during one of the hottest summers on record. Dan Yocum, owner of The Rocking Y Ranch in southern California delivered my 16.3 hand, 8 year old, off the race track Thoroughbred in superb condition. "Will" pranced down the ramp of Dan's trailer in excellent condition. Dan had stopped every hour to tend to the horses on board by spraying them with cool water, making sure the horses had lots of drinking water available and checking them for heat exhaustion.

You see, Dan is not only a hauler of horses, he is a horseman himself. He knows horses and he cares for their well being and comfort. I have spread the word to my hunter jumper / cross country / fox hunting friends here in north Texas about the Rocking Y Ranch and it's owner, Dan Yocum, who is the best, most caring and knowledgeable horseman in the business.
