    Hauling company questions/recommendations?

    Hey all, sorry if this is in the wrong place, I wasn't sure where to put it.

    I am purchasing a fjord mare from Wisconsin and I need her shipped to northern Indiana. I have never had a horse shipped so I have no idea how much I should expect to pay and what company I should use. If you guys have any recommendations or companies I need to stay away from that would be great. I want my mare to be safe ant comfortable. :)

    I do have pictures and she is up to date on vaccines and coggins. What is an average price for horse haulers?

    Have you actually gone to see her yet? I would HIGHLY advise seeing her in person first. Just so you can actually see her and how she is before you haul her. I have seen and heard of way too many horror stories of this going wrong. Granted some go smoothly. If you have access to a truck and trailer or a friend with one, you may just want to make the trip yourself so you can see her before you get her! Takes some of the risk out of everything. Good luck though!

    I have not seen her, but the person that I am getting her from said that I can return her if she does not work out. I actually don't have my license yet and there is no way I am getting my mother to haul a horse trailer to Wisconsin when she threw a fit when we had to got to Indianapolis. I have been talking back and forth be treen the owner for a few months now, so I am pretty sure that she is the right horse for me.

    Do your research and ask for references and check online for who ever you decide to let haul her. I just went thru a horrible experience for my pony and the new owner due to a bad hauler.
