Back in Spring 2013, at around hour 21 of a 42-hour drive from Kentucky to Calgary, a question came up: “What if there was an app where horse owners could connect with people drivers, like a horse transportation marketplace?” And so, for the rest of the drive we kept adding ideas and building up a service that we would love to have for our horses and ourselves.
Equine transportation was in desperate need of an upgrade! At the time, it seemed crazy that horse owners had to drive more than 40 hours to a competition, but the other choices didn’t add up.
It was really hard to find a good transportation company. Prices were absolutely ridiculous, scheduling was a nightmare and the worst part was that safety didn’t seem to be the number one priority. The lack of safety is what really hit us! That’s when Equo was born.
We assembled an all-star team of vets, competitive riders, transportation experts and horse owners- a flawless collective of know-how, expertise and state-of-the-art technology to create the most advanced horse transportation platform in the world.
Moving forward, we want to accomplish two main goals: to help horse drivers across America achieve financial independence and make sure horse owners forget about the complicated, pricey, and low-grade equine transport services, and embrace a new technology that brings forth top safety and quality travel.
Made up of international riders, vets and horse owners.
