I needed a horse delivered to me from about 220 miles away because my truck decided to break down and I could not find anyone I knew who was willing to drive that distance with a trailer and a large equine in tow. I have never used any type of horse transport services before, but I found this site by doing a search on google. Country responded quickly to my ad and said he could deliver my horse two days later. I had not even bought the horse yet, but intended to do so if I could have her shipped and remain within my budget. I thought that Country's price for this service was very fair and it was obviously within my budget. Of course we'd all like everything to be free, but considering the distance, time, and fuel costs associated with transporting a 1200 lb horse I certainly think his price was appropriate. So I purchased the horse and accepted Country's bid. Country's equipment was clean and in great condition and he was very good at handling my new thoroughbred named Honey. I had no problem getting in contact with Country at any time. After I purchased the horse he even offered to pick her up and deliver her on that very day (a day earlier than we had planned on). I thought that was incredibly generous of him and I was very pleased that he would offer to do that, however I had to decline because I wasn't sure I would have made it home before he got here since I had other things I needed to do before heading home. I have to say that overall, this was a great experience and I would definitely call Country again if I needed this type of service in the future.
