Getting my mare from NJ to CA? HELP!!!

I recently moved to San Diego and left my horse in care where I used to live in NJ. I am trying to bring her out here, but have a question or two. First of all, I want to find a good company or person to ship her with. What do I look for? Can anybody recommend one? My other main concern, is that I just got out of college, I have no job, and therefore not much money... I obviously would like to get her out here as cheap as possible, but am NOT willing to sacrifice her safety. Is it possible to find an individual or family going the same way? Or someone elses trailer I can hitch a ride on? Any other advice on how to get my baby out here as cheaply and SAFELY as possible would be awesome.

the only thing I can tell you is check the web, google it if you must. but MAKE SURE that they have an AIR-RIDE trailer, that long distance would be awfully rough on the horses legs without one.

Kyle at Pine Valley Acres ( is a good friend of mine and ships all over with awesome, new trailers, great prices, and will try to coordinate your mare with other horses he has to ship to save $$. He's at Services and is fully insured as well which is good peace of mind. Good luck!
