"Tanya has hauled my horses multiple times now and has always taken the utmost care with them. I know that when she is hauling them, that they are as safe as I could possibly hope for, with her behind the wheel. She goes out of her way to help customers and makes sure the horses and owners are happy. She is strong, honest, incredibly caring woman and professional. I am lucky to not only be a customer, but to also be able to call her a friend. To anyone who is looking for someone to their horses, i highly recommend Tanya. You couldn't be leaving your animals in more capable hands."
"I highly recommend employing Eastwind for ANY horse hauling! Tanya is honest, fair and genuinely cares about her precious cargo! She will always be my first choice to move a horse because it means peace of mind."
"I would never consider using anyone other than Tanya. She is fantastic with the horses and pups she hauls for me and is a great person to boot. Never enough time to visit though."
"I would like to thank Eastwind - Tanya Balmes for professionalism, expertise, care of transporting my daughters 2 horses on numerous long and short trips! Tanya, regardless of the weather conditions, you have always ensured that the horses health was taken care of and that they arrived at their destination safely. I can not express strongly enough my sincere appreciation and will not hesitate to hire you when and where needed. Thank you!!"
"Tanya is great at what she does! Not only does she handle the animals with great care but she kept us informed along the way and her trailer is amazing, ensuring the horses being hauled stay safe."
"Thank so much Tanya for transporting my newly purchased horse. Your excellent communication, great service and willingness to accommodate my requests was greatly appreciated. You were quick, prompt and your prices very reasonable. You will be the first person I recommend when needing a horse shipped and I would hire your services again without reservation. It was a real pleasure meeting and working with you!"
"Tanya did a wonderful job hauling my Rusty up to the Caribou from Oliver. Her trailer is gorgeous, roomy and a great lady that I felt totally comfortable with sending my boy off to his new home. And I might add I am really picky and would not hesitate using her again!"
"I have used Eastwind on 2 occasions now and Tanya has been the best! My animals arrived very relaxed and content! I also received a call from her once the horse was aboard with an ETA. I would highly recommend Tanya to anyone wanting transport, be it a long or short haul. Keep up the fantastic work Tanya!"
"The truth of the matter is that we only trust Tanya and no one else. When we had to move our horses across Western Canada, we talked to alot of haulers but found them lacking knowledge of horses. Luckily, we stumbled across Tanya's number and didn't look back. She answered all of our questions and was very patient. She was able to move our horses at a difficult time of year over a long distance, have them arrive at our property safely, in good condition and unstressed. She organized our haul and accommodations for the horses quickly and when she was thrown a curve ball en route, she was able to adapt to new circumstances. 2 of our horses are difficult to handle but Tanya and her daughter, Alyssa, handled them beautifully. Having had a bad haul experience, its a relief to know that we can trust Tanya to put our horses first, before her own needs. If you love your horse then choose Tanya as your hauler. We will definitely use Tanya's services again."
"Tanya is amazing! All of my previous experiences with horse haulers were the same. My big TB doesn't load well, so by the time he is in - it's slam the door and get moving. He gets stressed and is always a mess upon unloading. Tanya's approach was different - calm and patient - and within 10 minutes, he had quietly loaded into her trailer, and remained calm while we loaded some hay. Amazing! Upon arrival he unloaded like an old pro and hadn't even broken a sweat! He's never had an experience like this before - which is why I'll never use anyone else to haul my boys. I know they're safe, and well cared for with Tanya!"
