    Looking at possibly shipping a mare from Fl to NC. Does anyone have any references on a good horse shipper?

    I've met the owners of Equine Express several times and they are very nice people. Don't know if they have a route that matches your needs as they are based in Texas. However, maybe they could refer you...

    Check out www.equineexpress.com

    I've shown on the hunter circuit here on the East coast and most people who ship long distances in this circle use DJ Johnson. This time of year, with the winter circuits going on in FL, he would definitely have rigs running the route you're looking at.

    I found this number online: 610-488-7220

    Hubbard are the best - but also probably the most expensive.

    This is the truck my horse came home in:

    My neighbor, Elizabeth, rehomes OTTBs, so uses a lot of haulers and would be able to give you some names.

    Good luck!
