Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are your prices?

Our prices vary. Since no motion picture is the same, all the following factors will be considered:

  •  How many Cast horses
  •  How many ND horses (ND = nondescript)
  •  Types of wagons, buggies, stagecoaches, and/or carriages
  •  Do you want teams, 4-ups, 6-ups or 8-ups
  •  Locations
  •  How many horse days
  •  How many man days

We break down scripts and prepare budgets from our breakdown.

2. Is safety important to you?

Yes, many years of experience choreographing stunts with stunt coordinators that look great, and are safe for Cast and Crew is our number one priority. Following the Humane Society regulations, we make sure that all livestock remains safe and sound.

3. Do you have transportation?

Yes, we have horse trailers, flatbed trailers, trucks, and tack trailers. We can transport as many horses, wagons, and temporary corrals as you will need.

4. What kind of tack do you have?

We have current-day Western and English tack, western saddles, bridles, sidesaddles, and harness with a look for the 1800’s. We also have various specialty tack (Indian tack, cavalry,  science fiction tack and more). See our Tack here.

5. What is a team, 4-up, 6-up, 8-up etc…?

A team is a pair of horses (matching or not), a 4-up is two pair of horses harnessed and hooked to a wagon, a 6-up is three pair of horses harnessed and hooked to a wagon. 

6. Can you supply other livestock besides horses and mules?

Yes, we have goats, sheep, chickens and dairy and range cattle. Take a look at our Livestock.

7. Do you use your own employees?

We use union Teamsters and guild members who we know can perform their duties safely for horse and rider.

8. Do you work with production and their budgets?

Yes, we know time is money. We come to work prepared and with “in top” condition equipment.
