I came across uShip when I was trying to arrange shipment of a retired racehorse from upstate NY to North Carolina. I didn't realize that such a service/website existed, but what a great idea it is! Shipping horses is expensive and often horses are shipped alone through a private shipper thus putting all of the costs on the owner. uShip brings shippers and owners together to split costs and share rides. We have shipped three current or retiring racehorses using uShip and have used two service providers who both did a great job. One guy shipped a horse from FL to NC and the other guy handled two separate shipments of horses from NY to NC. I would definitely use uShip again and I recommend it to anyone looking to ship a horse.
