    The center of the road is designed to be higher for drainage

    My only tip for actually driving is leave 5 times the breaking time as usual, don't be afraid to honk at people who cut you off and be very aware of traffic. You have to drive slower, turn slower and wider and your braking time increases dramatically. I know its illegal, but its very educational to a new driver to stand in the trailer while its driven around the block to learn what the horses are going through.
    I find hauling to be much more draining than just driving. I haul to my coach 4 hours away at least 6 times a year and always have a Red Bull with me!

    Good luck and as has been mentioned before, get a mechanic and knowledgeable hauler to "show you the ropes".

    The only thing I could tell you is to drive the trailer empty a few time before you put your horse in get use to the size and weight
