    Default Who Hauls On The East Coast These Days?

    Haven't done this in a while so figured I would ask first...
    what companies are hauling up and down the east coast these days? Last year when I made arrangements for another horse, a lot of my old contacts were out of business

    I need to get a gelding from Lisbon, OH to Hurdle Mills, NC.

    Another COTHer and I were both pleased with the hauler we used a few weeks ago. Not a big name place. They're out of MI. My mare went from MI to VA and the other COTHer's horse went from OH to VA. I could PM you their contact info if you want. They're not a big outfit, but they took great care of the horses and the communication was TERRIFIC.
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    Brookledge, Creech, Equine Express, Sallee,... Everyone is gearing up for the winter circuit, it should not be hard to catch a ride south.

    Equine Express told me they were only doing shipments starting/ending in TX when I called a couple of weeks ago for my MI to VA haul. Maybe that's just a temporary thing though. I also called Hubbard, no dice. But I did PM you with that other contact, OP.

    Been 3 years now, but the Pony made the trip from NJ to TN using Athena at Horse Jitney. Couldn't have been happier with the service, communication, and MANY did the little girl get here looking good! I would highly recommend them after that trip, and if I ever need a long distance haul again, I would choose them in a heartbeat.

    BuddyRoo, could you also PM the contact info to me for the shipper you used? I'm looking to ship a mare from VA to MI this month and might need to go commercial if I can't find another ride for her.

    I'll just post it here because it's a business...I guess I didn't think about that. LOL

    Here's their uship profile: http://www.uship.com/profile/84dking/

    Contact is Hillary: 616 835 5590

    Email is: kingperformancehorses@yahoo.com

    They're not a big operation, but I was really pleased. The communication was fabulous and my (22YO) mare hopped off happy as a clam. Prices were very competitive.

    You're welcome to tell them that you got their info from Sarah w/ Cheyenne.

    Depending on what I find here for long term boarding, I may be moving my horse back to MI before we go overseas. Depends. But if I do, I'll use them again if possible.

    Fairway Horse Transport/ Mark Choper is fabulous. If he can't do the route you are looking for, he will be able to recommend someone that does. 800-577-8258

    Tapp Horse Transportation based out of Kentucky. They have brought the majority of the east coast retirees to us and they are fabulous.

    I know a lot of folks here in Ohio use Tapp's. They picked one up from my barn the other evening, and dang, did I want to steal their trailer!~!!!

    We were using Equine Express to move Willow from VT to KY, and I've heard nothing but good things about them.

    I have a bunch of others to research now. Thanks for this thread!
