I live in NW FL and had a beloved mare with health issues that required her to leave the heat and humidity of this State. I agreed to send her to my niece in PA if we could find affordable shipping. I had contacted one other professional horse hauler who wanted $750 BUT my mare would remain in a standing stall for THREE days!! I had to pass because I was not willing to put her through such an difficult journey. Then I saw an online ad for UShip and thought I'd give it a try. Within a few days I had accepted a bid for $700 which would only take 1.5 days and would allow my mare to ride in the comfort of a box stall with fans and a view of the outside world!! The hauler was Denise of Brookneal Farm Horse Transport and I would highly recommend her for the safe transport of your cherished horses. Denise went above and beyond the call of duty in the care of my mare which had sustained an injury just prior to shipment. She also phoned me during the trip with updates about the welfare of Sierra. Sierra is now my niece's first horse which is a wonderful thing to be....that means lots of love and attention...and probably carrots and apples too!! I would not hesitate to use UShip again. In fact, when I take my next vacation, I plan to see if anyone needs something delivered along my route. Any money earned could go right into the old gas tank!
