Hauling of mare

Excellent care was taken of the mare while being hauled and she arrived in great condition. I could tell they were experienced horse people who genuinely cared about the well being of all horses on board. Would definitly use again

Horse Hauling the way it should be

Recently I had my mare shipped back from NC to IL and used a shipper,not thru Uship, that took my mare on what was the worst horse ownership nightmare I could have imagnied. I was promise a direct route, and even though the hauling rig had a gps tracking device for me to watch online, soon learned it meant nothing while I watched my mare travel from NC to KY back to the NY coast then to MI then to ...

2 horses shipped from PA to SC

I had 2 horses shipped from PA to SC. For various reasons, the person I acquired the horses from did not have the horses ready when expected. However, my shipper waited until the horses were ready and all went well once they were on their way.


I'm new to the horse industry. I first was looking at purchasing a trailer. I found that I wasn't ready to own one so I started looking on the internet for trailers for hire. I fortunately found this website and Triple AC found me! I finally had someone to ship my horse to me safe and sound. My horse was delivered even before I expected. That was okay because I was really excited and anticipating ...


If You Need A Horse(s) Shipped? THIS IS YOUR GUY~HE IS AWESOME,Very~Very Communicative,Took well care of Horse,Very Clean Trailer. He hauled a 4 month old Filly for us From KS to WI. Awesome job I highly recommend& would do it again in a heart beat. Thank You Jasin U R Awesome!

Great Service

uShip is my go to website for having horses shipped. It saves money and both of the service providers we used did a great job with racehorses who had just raced a day prior to being shipped.

Two Thoroughbreds

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 sha ...

horse transportation

I love USHIP. It is easy to use, I have had a wonderful experience. The quality of the business is super, so thank you.

arabian gelding

Kevin transported my arabian gelding,Wildfire from Colorado to south Texas. I was a nervous wreck as I had never had him transported so far. But Kevin kept in great contact and reassured me. Wildfire arrived in fine shape. I can't thank Kevin enough for a job well done. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him!! Great price,great transporter.

horse hauling

This was my first time using uship and it really was very easy to do. I ended up having a great experience. My yearling filly arrived from Minnesota safe and sound and was treated so wonderfully. It was great to be able to see how many people had a good expereince with the vendor, bighoofs. They were absolutely the BEST.

Taffy arrived safe and sound

I had Taffy to arrive with another transporter who backed out on me last minute, I placed the ad on Uship and by morning I had 3 bids, the one I chose was because he said I had to accept by a certain time (since he was where I needed her picked up at). SUPER SERVICE, Uship has done good for me twice now.

Shipping a filly across the country

Excellent experience and I would use it again. I had experienced, kind haulers with good equipment and it saved me a LOT of money.


After booking my transport with another hauler and having to cancel because they were not only not communicating but couldn't pick up horse after 5 days of excuses, I lucked into a bid from Bob & Becky. My lucky day.... Becky called less than 5 minutes after I accepted their bid, were in constant contact with both myself and the seller. Felt very secure with their hauling Hershey after a rocky sta ...

Horse shipment

I needed to move my horse from MD to FL. My original shipper fell thru a couple of weeks before I was due to move her (although I was not in a time crunch)-so I posted an ad on USHIP. Sam was the first to respond, his price was very reasonable and he was able to pick up my horse within the week (which was a huge help). My horse came off the trailer calm and happy (which is not her usual persona ...

Last minute rescue of two horses

We rescued two horses from an auction in NJ. Our transport fell through so I posted on Uship. I had a transporter in 24 hours. They were professional and kept in contact with us the whole trip. I will use Uship from now on when I need transport.

Horse shipment

The overall experience was a positive one. They could have done an improved job w/communication. I understand my driver did not have cell service, so that created a problem, but too much time went by when I couldn't reach anyone. The condition of my horse on arrival was excellent. She had been well cared for, and she appeared to have been under minimal stress. When transporting horses you nee ...


Needed a filly shipped asap! Posted on thur am + needed it confirmed by thur night! They did just that @ a very resonable price!

Shipping Five Rescued Percheron Mares

I rescued five percheron mares from a slaughter broker, through Another Chance for Horses. The nature of these rescues is that you need to make arrangements ASAP to ship ASAP -- Friday afternoon you know you have the horses and Monday afternoon you must ship. AC4H said try Uship, and so I did, although worried how I would know if I got a decent shipper. I had one day to find someone to pick up ...

What a very crazy day

We were moving from ny state to virginia and highgoal was moving my horses and he made my move 100% easier and worry free when it came to my horses. Thanks again Steve

2 Shire Horses

I needed to get these girls out of South Dakota. The 2 previous shippers I was scheduled to go through were not able to get them. A month later I used USHIP and found Mike and Oscar. My timeline was a week to get them picked up. The scheduled it and got them down here fast and safely. Both Mike and Oscar kept in contact with me and answered any questions I had. They were both very easy to talk to ...

Transporting our 14:3 German Thoughout Bred Pony Paris the IV

When I found we would have to transport our German thoughoutbred pony,Paris, all the way from Hertsfordshire to Lincolnshire I was so worried. Money is very tight and we had first thought of hiring a self drive horsebox. As we did not have any experience of driving a box we soon thought it better to hire a professional transport service. I am not very good with computers or using the internet bu ...

Horse Shipping

U Ship was very easy to do and saved me money to use it. Kevin did a very good job with Max and I would use U Ship again. Thank you

Glad we did!

Never has shipped anything before. When we bought a horse 500 miles away, we didn't have a clue where to find someone to bring her to us. While googling for someone that does horse shipping USHIP came up. How great it was to have people willing to Bid on my shipment! We found a great shipper at a very fair price and couldn't be happier. GREAT Website and service!

resue is a risky business

We resuce animals and were moving to Florida with all of them. Sounds crazy and risky. Well, it could be, but Debbie pulled through for us and our 4 legged family members. Thank again and again,

Great experience with horse shipper

I had a great experience with my shipper,but wonder why uship misleads the people looking to have someone ship, by making it seem as though their deposit is for the shipper and does not inform the person looking to get a shipment done that this deposit (as they call it)is not for the shipper at all but a payment held for uship.

First Uship expericence

My first hauling experience with a horse transportation company, was cancelled after I had signed a contract and at this time,I have not recieved my deposit back. so I wasn't sure what to expect when I went to Uship searching for a shipper of my horse, but I found an excellent one in cindirapp, They picked up the horse on time and and delivered it safely and in excellent condition, commuincating ...

The best experience shipping my horse.

My horse arrived safe and sound. I would recommend this shipper to anyone shipping an animal and would definitely use him again. Thanks, Diane

horse transport

Uship was recommended by a friend and it was exactly what I needed. I wish I had known about Uship sooner! I will definitely let other people know about your service. Thank you very much for what you do.

Horse shipment

I needed to get my horse from MN to SD for the winter. My work keeps me on the road out of state most of the time. Fitting in a drive to SD would be a challenge, much less finding a horse trailer on short notice. Then someone told me about Uship. I placed my situation up for bids and got great response. I chose a provider very close to my location. We were able to arrange shipment in a very short ...


Our pony , Heidi was shipped across country and she was well cared for and happy when she got here. I liked using Uship because it was easy and I could list my shipment and just wait until the best bid came in rather than making a ton of phone calls. I have used Uship in the past and will use it again.

Nugget and Rhett - my special equines

My two guys needed to be sent to Nevada from Northern California. I had never used Uship before - didn't even know about it until I did an internet search and I found the site. It is very professional and I will use it again for any shipping needs I might have. Might even bring my guys back to California if I find I miss them waaaaayyyy toooo much!


It was great to have such an awesome site to do the dreaded legwork of calling around to see who could ship my horse! Will definitly use this site again if needed. Tracie is an amazing shipper and an even cooler lady!

Jackson (TX to CA)

I used Country to haul my horse from TX to CA. He did a wonderful job. The U-ship site was wonderful. Allowed me to choose the right shipper for the job, and read all the wonderful feed back on each driver. Which both helped make my decision, and give me a secure feeling about who had my horse. The whole thing went well with out hickup! Will use u-ship again!

Clydesdale Transport

I had a great Uship experience with this transport. I got a GREAT bid and the guy who gave me that bid was awesome! I had gotten lots of bids but he was the most reasonable and his price did not reflect his service. He provided great service and TLC for my horse. The Uship site helped me to get my horse moved for a minimal cost and helped me to meet a hauler I will certaintly use again!

A Wonderful Experience!

I run a small horse rescue called Spirits Rest. Most of the horses I acquire have issues regarding lack of trust, neglect, mistreatment, etc. Two of the horses David hauled I had only seen once, and the third I got without ever meeting her. When I realized we would be unloading in the dark I became quite anxious. David accepted the situation calmly, and proceeded to unload them and get them in the ...

My horse Uriska

I had my pregnant mare shipped from Michigan to Indiana. The hauler was very easy to work with and communicated well with me throughout the entire process. My horse arrived in great condition.

Merino Ram transport

This was a last minute transport we wanted to set up and I got a referral of on the Brn4d website discussion board. People of there are horse people wanting to ship livestock and dogs. It was easy to get registered on the website and use it for posting within 24 hours we had 2 replies. One person it didn't work out for and Jim had us set up in no time and we had the ram at our house from ...

Safe shipping for Nia

Had to return a horse I was leasing to her owner. Found an inexpensive shipper who was able to ship her when I needed and did so in a timely fashion.

2 percheron mares shipped

Uship was easy to use and helped me find a hauler for an unusual route for typical horse transportation

13 Horses safely shipped

I had to move my entire herd from Fl to NJ and was extremely nervous as this band of horses represents over 30 years of my life and I had previously had a very bad experience with shippers resulting in 3 injured horses, one of which almost lost an eye and was permanently disfigured. I can happily say that this experience, though emotionally draining for me, was a very positive one. I greatly appre ...

Great experience getting my horse home!

I never used UShip before but was told about them thru a friend, will glady use them again and refer my friends to this website!!

Moving Charlotte the Horse from SF to Reno

I heard about uShip from a boarding stable when I asked if they offered transporting services. I am sure glad I did. I posted that I needed my horse transported in less then a week and I was planning it from clear across the country. I got a fair bid below my budget from a well rated transported. I contacted, clarified some details, accepted and paid. They delivered her on time, safe and sound. I ...

Shipping Enapay

We had a 90 day trial period for the Therapeutic Riding Center of Huntington Beach. The horse did not work out so we had to send him back to Templeton Ca aboout 250 Miles. Kris contacted us right away and his price was super competitive for our charity. He was ontime and professional. Would call him first if I needed a horse transported again! Thank you Kris!

horse hauling to clinic

It was totally by accident that we came upon Uship. I was just about to give up getting my horse to a Julie Robin's clinic up in NH when my husband plugged in "horse hauling" into google and up popped Uship. It took about two days to get a bid but I did and it was right in my price range. I had great communication with Steve and had no worries. I would definitely use uship again.


Kevin was amazing! From the moment I spoke with him on the phone, I knew my horse would be in great hands. I knew where she was at all times and exactly when she would arrive. Once Kevin and Karry arrived with her, it was dark so Kevin took the time to walk the fence line with her and give me great advice on how to make her transition to her new home as smooth as possible. He even called the fol ...



UShip Equine Carrier Experience

I wish we had found UShip 2 months before. Other non UShip carriers were from $100 to $250 more expensive and we had to wait for their schedule. The networking allowed for a carrier to pick up my pony on the way home from delivering a horse within 200 miles or picking us up. Thus, making it a win-win for all. It took me a few moments to orient to rules and procedures but once I took time to read ...

First time shipping a mini

Valentine Transport transported my mini and I felt like she was in the best hands and it went super smooth despite the weather.


My experience was awesome with the help of Riovista!! I had booked with a shipper paid them upfront and found out after weeks of the shipment being pushed back that I was scammed out of thousands of dollars and devistated. I posted an ad under USHIP and got many people willing to help me but later then when my horses and goat needed to be shipped out. Riovista contacted me could get them out ri ...

Paint mare

Aaron, did a great job trailering the mare. He had a problem with a wheel bearing and was delayed, but the mare was well taken care of and he communicated with me, so all was well. Cell service is patchy where he was traveling, but he always got back with answers to my questions as quickly as he could.
