Hey everyone, Have a question here. My friend has moved to another province and had arranged to have her horse hauled last weekend. Ends up that was a no go, the lady hauling tried to "force" him on and was very rough with him and he wouldnt take it. He's the type of horse who needs lots of guidance and encouragement, not handled hard and rough and demanded. She arranged for some one else to haul him. Her mom (who is still in our province) went to the vet for something to sedate/calm him to make loading and hauling easier (he has a pretty long trip two provinces over) They ended up selling her Ace. Now I was looking it up a while ago to possibly use for my horse who is being extremely difficult to trim atm and found that it woulnt be good as they don't have great balance when aced up. I will note that I did find a more natural calmer instead for him but havent used it yet
I did let her know it most likely wouldnt be a great idea to give him ace as he could possibly loose balance while on the trailer but they are talking to the vet more about it.
Just curious if anyone has used small amounts of ace for trailering or if she should not use it at all. I told her to many call another vet for a second opinion but not sure if she did.
