Horse on the Road

Travelling with Horses

Horses are incredibly intelligent animals. They are bigger than us, stronger and quicker than we are which means they can cause some major damage to themselves and us when not taken care of properly – especially on the road.

It’s a known fact that horses are easily frightened by loud sounds like motor vehicles. This means that to transport a horse, you must be incredibly careful especially if they aren’t trained for transport.

Before setting off on your journey, there are many things that need to be considered. You will need to plan a route, to avoid extreme heat or cold, to limit the stops and starts. It is recommended to travel at night, as temperatures will be lower in the summer months and your horses could be more relaxed at night.
