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 have a lot of experience shipping my horse back and forth across the United States and I was very impressed with Dan’s operation. I recently moved my Dutch Warmblood Mare from Ridgecrest, California to Tucson, Arizona. My mare is a spirited girl, difficult loader, and anxious in the trailer. Dan was excellent. He arrived on time to the pick up location and was very courteous and professional. His truck and trailer were in excellent shape and prepared to haul my girl. He was patient and gentle with Ruby and she loaded without any problems. He called me on the road every few hours to let me know how Ruby was doing. He was able to watch her through the on board video capability and reassured me that Ruby was quite happy sightseeing, eating hay, and having a sip of water occasionally. He arrived on time to the delivery barn and Ruby unloaded in excellent shape. I will use Dan again for all of my hauling needs in the future. Thank you Dan!

I would highly recommend Dan. He hauled our older race/hunter mare to Idaho, giving her plenty of breaks and an overnight rest. His rig was spotless and he kept in touch with phone calls. He is an experienced horseman and handles horses easily.

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.

Thank you, Dan, for such a super job transporting my new mare, Zakora, from Colorado to her new home in Arizona. She arrived calm, relaxed and in excellent shape. I truly appreciate your professional and superb care during the long trip. I will certainly recommend you to all my friends who have hauling needs and will not hesitate to call you again if I have any transportation needs in the future! Thanks again!

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!

Ford, my mustang, transported from Riverside, Ca to Alamo, Ca, arrived calm, safe and sound. You don't need to search any further. The rig is awesome and so is Dan.

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.
