HORSE TRANSPORT ISSUES:
Transporting horses can be relatively safe and your worries can be mostly answered before hiring a service. You must approach this with certain questions that require good answers and assurances.
Whatever transport company you talk to, be sure to ask AND get AND check references. There is nothing silly about this; it’s actually very important. If you have insurance you need to know if your company covers your animal or if the transport company is licensed and has their own insurance to cover your animal. This too is vitally important. Others issues include how many animals the company transports at one time, how often do they stop during the trip and for how long ( it is good to give every animal time to urinate, and to be watered too, plus rest a bit, all of which requires at least a 20 to 30 minute stop. Be sure your they are to be watered !!! Generally no grain, but maybe some hay is good while travelling, and either a free box space or a very lose tie. Is there to be a layover, which might be really needed on long hauls. One assumes there will be ramps for loading and unloading, but it is good to ask. Nothing is too silly to ask, in the attempt to heighten safety and well-being
HORSE TRAILER ISSUES
When looking at trailers for sale, it can be a tough job, be they new or used. Prime questions of course relate to cost, features and what you assume are advantages or disadvantages of each.
Issues to cover in your own mind and then ask the seller about, would include the issue of ramp or step-down and where this is located (rear or side). Then there are slant loads and straight loads, bumper pulls or goosenecks and what weight can the pulling vehicle take easily and safely. For sure a double axel is a better ride for the animals. For sure padded is best ! Other issues are lights, led or otherwise, brakes and does the trailer stop by itself if it comes loose? Exterior lights are good, but interior are very good since horses don’t see so well into dark areas. Another question is with tack room, or without.
Ventilation is very key, and the best is window plus air strips, because air is more important that heat, to horses. f they can be free, or on a loose tie they can get their heads down and breathe better, but windows and air strips are important and so helpful !!
