About John

Stateside Farms, Inc.; owned and operated by North County native John McAndrews, was established in 1996. This Rancho Santa Fe based equine transport company specializes in shipping horses for shows, events, clinics and air transport;  locally, across country and internationally.

John oversees every aspect of Stateside's operations. His fleet of trucks are fully licensed, insured and impeccably maintained with attention to safety and the comfort of the horses.  McAndrews and his team are all experienced professional horsemen. For long hauls; horses are shipped with a team operation, minimizing travel time,  equine stress, and client expense. While in transport, the horses are monitored via cameras, and benefit from air ride suspension, boxed stalls (allowing freedom of movement and minimizing shipping sickness), abundant bedding, feed and water. In addition, each horse is blanketed and un-blanketed according to changing weather conditions. Every effort is made to accommodate the unique needs of individual horses.
