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.

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.

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!!!!

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!

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.

Dan has hauled several of my horses over the years. He is gentle and kind and his rig is spectacular. I trust him hauling my horses and would not use anyone else. He is a lover of the animal and my horses always have a great experience. They load with ease and are monitored by camera while being transported.

He is really fair in price and has the knowledge in all aspects of hauling horses. I would highly recommend Dan Yocum of Rocking Y Ranch to anyone needing a high quality ride for their horses. He has hauled for several of my friends who have also recommended him to their friends.

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!
