I did the same as far as getting quotes from the horse haulers...even if you don't use them I always sent an email back thanking them for their time anyhow.

We had a horse shipped from Utah to Texas and it cost us about $600. I got quotes from about a dozen other shippers and that was the cheapest and seemed to be professional.

I wish I could warn you of one particular horse transporter that delivered an expensive stallion that was just purchased from Texas to Washington. Upon delivery, they told the new owners to talk to their lawyer and refused to say anything about how the horse had its neck broken in transport. By some miracle, the stallion was still alive and went into intensive care at the vet. I wish I knew what company that was, and I do realize that accidents can happen, but refusing to say anything about what happened is a big red flag.

So not only get quotes, but do a little background check of the company, previous customers, references, insurance policy, ect.

Oh wow!! That really makes me weary about using any horse hauler! Maybe I will just fork out the money myself and borrow a trailer and get the horse myself..atleast I'd know it was safe! But, I am going to try and find one local if can and if not...I believe I will go and pick the horse up myself. Thanks for all the info!

I've had a few horses shipped long distance and have never had a problem, they arrived in great shape, and the rigs they got to ride in were far better than my old stock trailer.

For anyone looking for transport I recommend joining this group

It's a great way to get quotes or to find out how to get a shared ride

Oh, hitch-hiking horses on Yahoo, as well! That's where I've found all my haulers and they've all been great.

I love these people. I shipped a horse from Northern Utah to Helena, Montana for 375$. They treat your horse well and mine didn't even want to get off the truck

I shipped my mare from So cal to nor cal a 9 hour drive in a huge 8 horse for 445 it was a ridiculously cheap price. I loved the people thouh and my horse arrived in great shape. I also shipped a horse from nor cal to lexington for 900, I thought that was a great price too.
