The CP National Horse Show announced today that they are proud to once again welcome back Brook Ledge Horse Transportation as the Official Ground Transportation for this year’s event in Lexington at the Horse Park on November 1-6, 2016. In addition to continuing their official carrier status, Brook Ledge has upped the ante this year to include the sponsorship of the all-new Brook Ledge Rider’s Lounge, and they’ll be inviting everyone to attend a special Breeder’s Cup Viewing Party at Gracie Street Garden on Saturday during the show.

Brook Ledge Inc. is now one of the largest Horse Transportation companies in North America. Operating out of its home office in Oley, PA, Brook Ledge Inc. maintains terminals on farms in Lexington, KY and Ocala, FL as well as basing vans in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Long Island NY, New England and South Florida.

Brook Ledge and the people behind the name are committed to providing the most outstanding service possible in horse transportation, from shipping famous show and racehorses, including Triple Crown Champion, American Pharoah, to pasture companions and faithful steeds. Brook Ledge understands that whether your horse is a companion or a champion they are all equally important and this is why they treat each horse with the highest care and attention.

“We are so proud to welcome Brook Ledge back as our official ground transport,” said Mason Phelps, Jr. President of the National Horse Show Association. “It’s always a boost to the show when a long running and reliable sponsor says, ‘we want to do more’ and that’s just what Brook Ledge has done this season. We’re delighted that they’ve expanded their role with us this year, taking on the all-new Brook Ledge Rider’s Lounge. When you think of quality and reliable horse transportation, the name that comes to mind is always Brook Ledge.”

“We have sponsorships at all levels of the sport horse world. We try and give back to the industry which has so warmly embraced us,” noted Curt Lange, spokesman for Brook Ledge Horse Transportation. “Our sponsorship for the CP National Horse Show at the beautiful Kentucky Horse Park has turned into a win/win for all involved. We’re going on five years together with the National and we at Brook Ledge really appreciate the opportunity. This year, we look forward to meeting many more new friends in the Brook Ledge Rider’s Lounge,” he said.

When you think horse transportation, think Brook Ledge. In addition to operating full service maintenance shops in Oley, PA and Lexington, KY, the company has been building custom horse vans at the Oley facility for the last 25 years. Their trailers are designed for maximum comfort and safety. The fabrication is a trade secret; they can guarantee that no other carrier has vans like theirs. Over the years they have evolved to be the safest and most comfortable state of the art horse vans on the road. Some of the features that distinguish Brook Ledge from the rest include Air Ride trailers (& tractors), wide doors, lower ramps for ground loading, insulated trailers to keep cool in summer and warm in winter, single, double and box stall configurations and better ventilation with Dutch doors and windows on fronts, backs, and sides. Their trucks also include full roof wells for storage of equipment and closed circuit video from van to tractor for everybody’s peace of mind.

“Our large fleet enables us to provide safe, timely shipping of your horses throughout 48 states and Canada. Our delivery methods are tried and true,” Lange continued. “No horse spends any more time on the truck than absolutely necessary. With a tradition for the safest, quietest and most comfortable horse transportation available, why call anyone else?”

When making your plans for this year’s CP National Horse Show, please keep Brook Ledge Horse Transportation in mind. Brook Ledge is proud to have achieved the Department of Transportation's highest rating.
