I looked for a long time to find the right horse. I am a beginner and needed that special horse. My first horse. Once I finally found him I had to get him from Kentucky to New Mexico. This was hard for me. I looked at several companies on my own before finding the uship website. Companies had told me they didn't go that far or had outrages rates due to gas prices. I was worried I would not get my horse after all. I thought I would give uship a try. Within 24 hours I had 3 bids. I checked out each one and asked questions about the trucks being used. I wanted to make sure they were not open cattle trucks. My new best friend would have to be comfortable for such a long journey. I read all the feedback on the uship site about the companies that made an offer. I also visited any website for those companies. It was not an easy choice. But I am extremely happy with our experience. I selected Equine Logistics, owned by Tom Rowntree. He was very easy to talk to and set my mind at ease. Tom was more than willing to answer any and all questions. Even ones about horses in general. He gave me feedback about how my horse was doing at each leg of his journey. Tom helped me relax and just get excited about meeting my new horse. Using uship and Equine Logistics has made this a very positive and rewarding experience. I am happily united with my horse and had no problems with any part of this experience. I would recommend and definitely use Tom and uship again
