Horse Transportation

Horses November 06, 2014 Print Friendly and PDF

As someone involved in the horse industry, you may frequently haul horses under your care. It may be necessary to transport them to the veterinarian, the breeding farm, a show, a sale, or just to go riding on a Sunday afternoon.

With some planning, the trip can be successful, and the stress associated with hauling horses can be reduced.

Transport considerations will vary depending on the purpose you have for trailering your horse. While you might plan for days for a trip to the mountains to trail ride, the emergency trip to the vet clinic won't be as well planned. Despite those differences, you can still have a basic plan for hauling your horse.
