I have owned my 14 year old mare for 10 years now and she has been great when travelling in a trailer or a horsebox, but for the last approx 4 goes travelling she has had trouble with her balance and she has nearly fell over quite a lot and on one occasion she did lay down in a trailer (we checked her all over and she wasnt hurt). We have tried her between all the partitions in the horsebox and trailer and giving her more space, but she is still the same. She doesnt get stressed and she does keep loading everytime. We put tail bandage and guard on top, a cooler rug and travel bandages and boots on all together for full protection. I have decided not to travel her again unless we can find out whats going on, the last thing we want is to hurt or distress her.
I was just wondering if anyone else has had this experience and if anyone has any suggestions I could try?
