how much will it cost to...

have a horse shipped from Clovis, New mexico to Prineville, Oregon? This is just a hypothetical question. Im not sure if it can even be answered, but I was hoping maybe someone here knows of a website that can give me a "rough" estimate???

most individual shipping companies you can email or call to get an estimate from.

ya, but its not a serious thing so I don't want to waste there time. I was just hoping maybe there is a website that can calculate it and show you right away. Im also thinking it is just to far. I mean, its a few states away from me.

I had quotes for about 2200 for shipping Montana to New Jersey if it helps any... It's about 2000 miles.

Yeah, it's pretty expensive and if your horse has any special care needs it goes up more.

When I first moved FROM NJ, it was about 1800 but that was in 2001ish.

If you can do it sometimes they have trailer shares on Craigslist. Like for example there is someone driving cross country with their horses and they have room for one more horse they will post on there to try and get some money to help with gas or whatever.

I hear that can be cheaper. You'd just have to be really flexible with your dates.

I've had a horse shipped from San Antonio, Texas to Fort Collins, Colorado for $1300. The same horse is getting shipped from Fort Collins, Colorado to Aiken South Carolina for $1800, the trip is 625 miles longer than the one from Texas to Colorado.

It depends on the company, the size of stall you want in the trailer, if you're having items shipped as well (i.e. A saddle, some grooming supplies, etc.), if your horse has special needs that need to be taken care of, if your horse is a bad loader, if you have to have an overnight layover, etc.
