Good Reliable Shippers for a horse?

Its a long story, but my friend leased a horse that is not working out. Since she is wanting to send him home before the lease is up she is responsible for shipping him back. The owner is being super picky about who hauls this horse because she had a bad experience with a commercial hauler when this horse was purchased.

Could anyone give me some recommendations for really good haulers to get this horse from Northern New Mexico to the Denver area, around the middle of April?

Have you personally used this shipper? I'm sure my friend, and the horse's owner won't go with any shipper that doesn't come with a personal endorsement.

It's actually a website where you list the shipping dates you need, where to, and how much your willing to spend. Shippers will then bid on it for you business. They have customer reviews and many of them have their own websites. I have used it several times and have had positive experiences with the shippers I have used. I would check in to Drexler Horse Transportion. However, they are based out of IL (I think) and I'm not sure what routes they use. But I would highly recommend using this website. Good luck!

We had a horse shipped from Utah to Texas. Renee was really nice, and she constantly updated me where the horse was at and when he would arrive. They hang feed and water in the trailer so my horse didn't arrive ganted up from the trip. I would definitely use her again.

My gut says let the owner pick the hauler. I can see this going bad real fast if the owner decides your friend chose the wrong hauler. SOMETHING will be wrong with the horse is her mind.
