If you are looking for a horse shipping calculator, we can tell you that prices vary depending on if you are transporting your horse intra-state or across the country or even across international border. If it is just locally, some horse transport companies charge $1 per mile (plus tolls as applicable). This includes unloaded miles to and from the pick up location. Usually there is a minimum charge of approximately $100. Other haulers can charge around $2 per loaded mile, plus there are additional charges for loading, unloading, wait time, and charges such as tolls and the like.
Long haul routes – out-of-state – is usually based on a contract price. This is determined by how horses are in the load that are headed in the same direction. This sometimes requires that you to wait until a full load is been booked.
