The girls are very well-you did a great job getting them here!! I was thinking about you when I heard about the snow and hoping you were not going the way of that horrible early prairie storm frown. Stay well and safe travels and thanks again for getting my girls to their new home.

Cheers For Now -Pat

Hi Niki,

Your quote got burried but ive found it. Thank you so much for the fantastic deal! Youve always been the best pricewise (and if it was me bringing one home id be using you for sure!) The buyer has decided to wait until fall as they work at a campground and now is the busy season. She says if he is still here in the fall she would be more likely to take him. I expect him to sell by then. Sorry to have used up your time. Hopefully i have one to go or one to come up sooner rather than later. 

Thanks again

Hi Niki,

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for taking such good care of my mare and bringing her all the way from Vermont to Alberta safe and sound!  Thanks for all you do!

Hey Niki!

Just a note to say Thank you.

 I was nervous buying a horse from the states. But with your experience and the brokerage firm you teamed with, the whole experience went without a hitch. From informing me of what paperwork needed to be completed to keeping me informed on the trip Zola was on, it was a pleasure.

Your rate was more than acceptable and the second hauler also found you pleasant, knowledgeable.

I wanted to say THANK YOU and definitely will use you again for a haul.                Rosa Holden  J

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry for the late reply. I'm very happy with him. And also,

want to thank you for taking such good care of him and sorting out all the hiccups of this haul. By the way you run things I'm sure you are not lacking extremely positive references but if you ever need one I will sing your praises happily. As well, if I make any further purchases requiring shipping like this, you will be the first person on my speed dial.

Thank you so much,

Hi Niki,

 Thank you for everything.  It was a pleasure working with you and everyone else.  Everything clicked off on time and everyone's cooperation and commitment made this a hugely successful endeavor.   

Sad to say I probably won't hire you again in future because I have secured my future trail horse string now, moving Morgan stallion off to trainers next month in hopes of a sale, and the ponies will be sold shortly, so I can reduce my herd to just four. 

It's been a pleasure.  Good luck to you and enjoy your summer!

Hi Niki, 

Just wanted to thank you again for taking such good care of Kitten on her journey from Regina. She was very calm when she got home. My sister mentioned that you were chatting about doing some trail rides with us over our way. We would love for you to join us so just give us a text or call anytime. Monica @ 780-318-5882. 

Thanks

Thanks again.        Will let you know for sure if I need future hauls :)

I am happy to provide  a  reference for  Twilight Hauling. Niki came highly recommended to us, and her handling of our two year old was excellent. Niki has a beautiful, very safe trailer with roomy stalls and I was so happy with how she gave the filly time to look over the situation and then led calmly on-this baby had only been hauled twice before.
My friend in Surrey said the filly was relaxed and very calm coming off the trailer. No qualms entering the next one and settled in her new home very well.
Niki's timing was within a few minutes of her ETA.
I would not hesitate to use Twilight again.

Hi, Niki:

The room on your California trips made me think I should bring another El Campo relative home!  I am not allowed at the moment... :) El Campo is doing great and is a total joy! We just love him more and more everyday and (in my biased opinion), he just seems to get prettier all the time. Of course the best part is he is so gentle, kind, smart and friendly. He has been with Katelyn Carter since May, starting under saddle and will be going with her to school to keep working over the winter.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of him when you brought him to me. I still get butterflies thinking of your early "Christmas morning" phone call and seeing your rig at the end of the road in the dark. My heart skipped a beat when you opened the trailer door and he turned his head and looked back at us! And my heart has been skipping ever since!

Hope you are having a great summer!

Best,   Shannon Stubbs

Hi Niki,

Sorry I know you're on the road or will be soon lol.
I just wanted to shoot you an extra Thanks for the smooth ride and patience loading.
They have settled in really well and are already picking up.
I knew if you and Ron dealt with Finley he would walk on. I'm very proud of him, but honestly you've been our life saver so many times!

FROM  HEATHER O in Saskatoon:

I thought I would send a quick note and say thank you for bringing my new baby home! I have never bought a horse from out of the province, let alone out of the country. You may the experience very easy and stress free. The help you provided to ensure I had the proper paper work and it completed in a timely fashion was a big help. Your communication throughout the trip was great, I never had to worry about where he was or how he was doing. He arrived in great shape, and I could see that he was well cared for on the trip. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends, nor would I hesitate to call you in the future.
 
Thanks for bringing my new horse (or giant as you called  him) home! It was well worth the wait.
 
Sincerely,
 
Heather

 

Hi Niki.

 I just wanted to let you know that Missy, the TWH mare, that you delivered to Kingsgate on August 1st is settling in just fine.  We have already been out to Cochrane, Alberta on another "outing".   

Again, many thanks for an excellent job of bringing her up from California.  I will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for someone to haul their horses for them.  You did a great job. 

Best regards.  Shelley Voight

Thank you so much for hauling for me again! :) I'm sure I will have many more in the future.... oh and im constantly sending people your way, so I hope you will be enjoying all those unique-colored horses on your hauls. :)

Just wanted to say thank you, Niki, for your kindness in getting the boys loaded and on their way.
Your attention to detail when you were here for your other horses on board was obvious.  I am thankful that Jonesey has you to care for him on his very first trip away from home.
Safe travels; Hope my boys are travelling well for you.
Thank you, again; I was extremely sad to see them go, but it eased my pain knowing you were in charge of them.

Thank you..they sent photos and videos last night she looked like she walked across the road ..in other words FANTASTIC!

I know that trail ..its long...we used to go to Red Deer for the Regionals..

Again yes, we have you on the top of our lists for hauls in and out of here..I will be at Abels in 10 days..they have a couple of colts by our stallion that might need to come here for a show ...so you would be perfect for that haul too!!

THANKS AGAIN!

I have hauled many times with Niki at Twilight hauling! The horses I have shipped have come from Benzanson Alberta, all unbroken and mostly unhandled, and that's extremely far to travel! Niki always gives me a report what they look like when they're picked up (because normally I buy sight unseen and videos and pictures can be deceiving as you probably know). She is an excellent horse woman, driver and maintains her rig meticulously! And stays in touch en route.  The youngest I have shipped is a nine month old and he arrived in perfect condition.

Of course with the length of the trip varying depending on weather and such I expect them to lose a little weight in transit but she makes sure they are offered water frequently so they normally plump back out with good hydration once here. If you ask her she will tell you I always bug her when I'm horse searching because I won't use anyone else! I've been working with her for probably seven or eight years now -and I would not go elsewhere so long as she is in business because she is simply excellent.

 Hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Hey Niki, 

Just a quick note to send you an up date on the old thoroughbred you shipped here from B.C. for us. He was the big chestnut from Maple Ridge Naiad was his name.

In this pic he is out with the thoroughbreds :)

Thanks for getting him here safely.

Thanks Niki. I appreciate the care given to him and your catering to a "worry wart" owner. I will definitely use your services again.

Hi Niki;

I just wanted to let you know that the mare that you brought from Washington to AB last September had a filly yesterday.

I have attached a picture.

Thank you for your wonderful care of her.

I would recommend you in a heartbeat.

Blessings

 Dolly is GREAT! What a nice mare.....certainly glad I grabbed her, ribs, bones, skin and all! lol Very rough shape...but she is sooo thankful to me, and LOVES her new home with endless food supply :) And the colt...is a little hambone! He is so friendly...and full of piss and vinegar! She is in with a mare I bought form the same farm.....and is happy to be reunited with her friend.
 
I want to thank you again for taking such great care of them. You saved her life that’s for sure.
 
Ill keep that haul in mind, as I am always looking at horses from that area. Thank you!

Dear Niki,

Thank you for the good care of our Cobs on their way to Suzannes.

We would appreciate hearing from you when you are coming through our part of the country.
