    Default Best companies for long distance shipping?

    Hi All,

    My trainer's rig was written off in a wreck a few weeks ago and here we are in Ocala with no ride home. I've emailed for quotes at International Horse Transport, Brooke Ledge and a horse transportation network that supposedly solicits multiple quotes.

    Where would you suggest we look for shipping for eight horses from Florida to Ontario, Canada? Budget is an issue as five horses belong to my trainer, and i know funds are very tight in the fallout from the accident.

    Thanks in advance!

    I've used Aprile Horse Trnsprtn Incorporated 708-258-9449. Good price, great service.

    Drexler was also highly recommended-http://www.drexlerhorsetransportation.com/

    There's also a guy "HaulnHorses" that occasionally posts on COTH- http://www.candehorsetransportation.com/ , http://www.facebook.com/CandEhorsetransport

    Not sure if they cover that route but my go to for a first quote is always Equine Express.

    Equine Express doesn't go to Canada, but they meet up with Perry Transport services in KY and transfer the horses to them. Perry Transport is based in Canada. I like EE, but don't know much about Perry - other than EE recommends them. Perry might also go all the way to FL.

    Just checked their website and they offer a multiple horse discount. That is very helpful!
