Dippy's Horse Transport - Our Story
After working with Garry Higgins of Higgins Thoroughbred Transport for the very busy 2011 Thoroughbred breeding season, we developed a love for helping our customers with their transport needs. When Garry sold his business in 2012, we had the pleasure of working with a ton of return clients, and took the opportunity to offer horse transportation services year-round. Dippy's Horse Transport was born.
