How Do You Transport Your Horse Safely?

Transporting your horse safely can be done by hiring expert horse transportation, or you can transport your horse yourself if you’re equipped with a truck and horse trailer. If you transport your own horses, have a trailer repair professional examine the trailer and hitch before you travel to be sure they’re safe. Some tips for safe horse transport include:

  • Secure all items in the trailer.

  • Ensure adequate ventilation.

  • Provide access to water.

  • Give the horse room to drop its head.

  • Plan regular breaks along the way.

Before getting on the road, make sure your horse has had a recent vet visit and is up to date on vaccines. Ask your vet whether to give your horse probiotics before the trip to help prevent digestive troubles while traveling.
