Does anyone have a recommendation for a shipper or shipping company that goes from NY to TX around this time of year? I need a mare moved and having a bit of difficulty. I don't *love* Brookledge but I know they have some trips coming down. any other suggestions? Thanks!
I have a mare coming to north Texas from NY this coming week. EE quoted at $1595. Cox Horse Transport is $900!! I started using Cox a couple years ago after having some booking issues with EE. EE makes the trip every week, and Cox every other. If you call Cox, ask for Alison (it's a guy, and he's awesome).
I just had a mare shipped down to TX in Oct 2012 and had her shipped back from to CT in Feb 2013. I used Cox Equine Transport both times and they were wonderful.It was $850 a 2.5 day ride for her, but they stop at layover to feed more hay/water/check on the horse. They have brand new trucks, big 9 horse slant load trail and drive in teams so the horses don't have to sit on the truck longer than necessary. She arrived tired (who wouldn't from TX to CT lol I know I would be tired), but looked great and was rested by the next day!
