​At RunAmok, we pride ourselves on being horseman first.  Our staff has a diverse background in the horse industry, covering almost every discipline.  Everyone on the team has extensive horse experience. We treat your horses like we would our own.  Our knowledgeable drivers and friendly staff make sure you and your horse are taken care of from the first phone call to the final delivery.   We know shipping your horse long distances can be stressful, both for the owner and the horse, so we strive to make it the best experience for everyone.

In addition to horsemanship skills, RunAmok drivers are thoroughly screened, background checked, and are randomly drug tested. We ensure that all of our drivers follow the rigorous USDOT regulations and commercial licensing. Safety is our topmost concern so we always plan our trips with this in mind.

Joel does it all from managing RunAmok, driving, and mucking the trailer.
