Trailering

Hi Everybody !

So I contacted this person, who breeds Gypsy's who is offering people who need there horses trailered during there route out to manitoba.
They are from Saskatchewan, and I asked them for a quote how much it would cost for them to go out of there way to pick up my girl twister from Binscarth.
They said they could pick her up and trailer her as far as winnipeg or Beausejour, personally I think Beausejour is my best bet. I don't really want to go down to winnipeg lol.
They are offering this for 100$. They are very experianced and all horses need there vaccinnations.
Do you think this is worth it ? Where I get them to trailer her out part way. Because binscarth is 5 Hours from where I live and that I pretty far compared to 1 hour and abit. Where we can find a friend with a trailer to go and bring us to pick her up with their trailer and bring her to my house.
What do you think ?

They are hoping to come out around November 7th, which is pretty decent and would give me enough time.
Plus $100 To get her in their route abit would be very cheap compared ?

Opinionsss ? Also anyone from manitoba here with a trailer willing to help me out get my girl home when im ready for her :) ?

I think it's a great deal. It cost me $400.00 to ship one of my old mares from Manitoba to Alberta. The called me twice a day to let me know where they were and called me when they were just mins away from my house. Well worth the money and I didn't have to worry about anything.

Thank you :)
I do think that it is a great deal too, not to out of the way of their route. Hopefully if I take this up, I can find someone who is willing to transfer her onto there trailer, after she gets off of that route...
To bring her here !

Im not hiring them to come all the way from saskatchewan, but they are delivering a baby out to manitoba, so on there way, in my horse is 5 hours off from where I live, they can pick her up there for me and so forth :)
But comparing if I did that, it will be cheap to hire someone else to pick her up from the meeting spot ? Since it would only be an hour and a bit and not the whole 5 hours.

Am I right ?
