    Hi all, Hoping for any tips/advice/experiences you have surrounding hauling horses long distances. In a couple months my boy will be travelling down south, as our weather takes a turn and it becomes 85% + humidity 24/7 with high temps, making it very hard to be a horse without all sorts of...

    Hi everyone! I have read conflicting remarks on the use of shipping boots. I usually don't use leg protection in the trailer simply because I'm usually hauling one horse and I have never hauled over 3 hours. However, I am preparing for an 8 hour trip in the cold winter weather. I want to make...

    I know that if you want to haul a horse (Ithink it's at least 75 miles) he/she needs a negative coggins test which I get every year along with rabbies. What else do I NEED to get and what SHOULD I get? Thanks for any help.

    I have a rescue horse needing transport. An 2001 Arabian stallion, he's in good health and easy to handle. He's being kicked out early December and I'm giving him a good home - full care, dressage training (and showing if he's up to it). The owner just doesn't have the resources to keep him and...
