My husband and I had to relocate to Virginia, because of his job, from our horse ranch in Colorado a year ago. It was a sad day to leave our 30 horses and our family although we new we would be flying home every few months to visit. I'm happy to report that my sons have done an amazing job in taking over the ranch and caring for the horses. Afer a year of being in Virginia and using borrowed horses to rope on, my husband decided that we needed to bring out one of his special roping horses. The drive to Virginia is 3300 miles round trip so we decided to shop around and see about having her shipped to Virginia. I googled "horse transportation" and up came the uship sight. I really loved the fact that you could list a price that you were willing to pay and if a shipper thought that they wanted that job, they would respond. Well, Holly wasn't on that sight for more than a few hours before Wings Horse Transport picked up the bid! I called and discussed it with Kirk and he immediately put to rest any fears I had about hiring someone else to bring our precious and expensive cargo to us! Mitch, who hauled Holly here for us called us everyday to let us know how she was doing. He would tell me if she had ate well and drank well that day and how she seemed to be handling the long trip. Thank you uship for providing a service that puts people together to best meet their needs. If I ever need a horse shipped again, I've met a wonderful person that I trust through uship! If I ever need anything else shipped to me, I'll be sure and go through you ship!
