I have to say I was little nervous sending someone I have never met before to pick up a pony I had never seen in person... to deliver it to us 1,100 miles away in the middle of July. Before trying uShip, I called 8 different shipping companies for estimated costs and timing - most of them never even called back. I was beginning to get disheartened. Here was my daughter's new pony... being boarded half a world away, and I had no way to get her to her new home! A friend told me about uShip. Within 5 hours I had a handful of bids. And a week later, our pony was delivered. Welsh Equine Enterprises were courteous and professional from beginning to end. They made sure all parties were aware of every move they made. The know how to haul horses safely and efficiently. And thanks to them and uShip, my daughter has a smile from ear to ear that will likely stay there for years to come. The service Welsh Equine Enterprises cannot be priced. When transporting incredibly expensive and fragile loads like ponies, you just have to deal with a pro like Billy Welsh. Thanks!!
