Buying a new horse in Wisconsin, when I live in New Hampshire, in the middle of winter, led to all sorts of interesting dilemmas. I had no idea how to get her home, so began my experience with the world of interstate transportation on a personal level.
As I proceeded to solve my transportation problem, everyone I came in contact with gave me more knowledge. By the time I chose CJrodeogal, I was more than ready to have my new horse, who I'd owned for two weeks, home! So, CJ's promise to have her here promptly was a big factor in my choice. Her price was in the middle of the bids I received, and I'd been trying to make my choice based on quality of ride for Sugar not budget. CJ and I were in often enough communication during the trip, and I must admit, for me to share in the details sometimes had me summoning strenth not to be a "nervous Mom" type. I did manage, I hope, to make myself pleasant to work for by not badgering CJ on the phone while she was driving, but waiting for her to call me. CJ's experience and my faith worked! She had Sugar home two days earlier than promised! What a pleasant surprise and what a way to feel as if I'd really gotten my money's worth. While there were some frustrations early, trying to arrange this through UShip, if it hadn't been for this service, we wouldn't have come together. I certainly wouldn't criticize success, and this was an overwhelmingly successful endeavor from my and Sugar's (I'll venture to say) perspective. Sugar walked off that trailer looking and acting like a million bucks (I sure didn't pay that much for her :)My sincere heartfelt thanks to everyone involved!
