McCarty LTD branches out their business from training horses, to include transporting horses



John McCarty and Carrie Cada have over 60 combined years involved in the horse industry, both beginning their horse experience before the age of 10. While most those years have been anchored in the Arabian horse breed and industry, they have garnered experience throughout their careers in many different breeds and disciplines including Quarter Horses, Draft breeds, Reining horses, Morgans, Saddlebreds and Thoroughbreds.

John and Carrie opened McCarty Ltd in the spring of 2012, and began accepting client horses in training at their location in Omaha.  John and Carrie train primarily Arabian and Half Arabian English and Hunter pleasure show horses, with a strong emphasis on starting young prospects and developing junior and amateur riders.  They are also starting a small breeding program of their own to produce the beautiful, athletic, and winning Arabian horses they love to train and show.  

In Early 2016, a longtime friend of John and Carries let them know he was looking at selling his top of the line commercial horse rig.  John has operated similar equipment over the years in his work for large breeding farms and training facilities, including their own training operation here in Omaha.  At that time, John and Carrie made the decision to venture into the equine transport industry in conjunction with their training operation.  Having held his CDL since the early 2000’s, and with the availability of one of the nicest rigs on the road, John saw an opening in the Midwest for this type of high end horse transport company.
