How much does it cost to ship a horse?

I'm looking for someone to go to Indiana and bring a horse to NY?. I've never done anything like this but I'm curious to know how much it would cost to hire someone and do it vs. doing it myself.

Varies amongst the haulers. Expect $0.50 to $1.50 per loaded mile (meaning, one way). I recomend Hauled Wright, www.hauledright.com who are great, highly recomended by many people, and at the low end of price :)

Haulers with the fancy Air Ride trailers charge more of course.

You can get a free online quote. We got a quote from these people to haul from KY to IL for $290. They're located in eastern IL so may be convenient to where you're looking.

Sallee horse transportation is the ONLY company we will use to transport our expensive racing TBs from track to track.

I got a quote for $850 from Missouri to California. I'm not using the service, though.

A rough guess would be $800-$900 for that distance.

There is a website - uShip - that you can get quotes from and book shipments. Works like eBay... you put in the details and various shippers bid on the job. You can accept a bid, but are not obligated to choose a particular one (or any of them). I just booked a shipment using the site and it worked out pretty well.

I've used uShip too, I paid $250 to get my gelding from NY to TN. It was with a reputable race horse stable they had an open stall to fill so I got it at a cheaper rate. He got here in perfect condition.
