Looking for a shipper to move one horse from Franklin, GA to Spring City, PA. Any suggestions of reliable shippers with reasonable prices? Horse is 3 year old thoroughbred mare around 16 hands. Would love to find someone else coming from surrounding areas (maybe florida?) to share shipping costs with. Can be flexible on date within next month to month and a half.
While Brookledge is the creme de la cream of horse transportation, they quoted more than triple of what Zachary Keith charged me to ship a horse from SC to PA two years ago. I don't know if he's still transporting horses, but I was happy with the experience. My horse got his own box stall, too:

I would recommend Phil Silva from Ten Broeck Farm Mass. He goes from Fl to Mass and all points in between, Very good horse handler and transporter and always looks after the horses well. He has a FB page and is easy to contact. His rig is an air ride with cameras and such. I always use him on a long haul if I cant do it myself.
