Preparing Your Horse for Shipping

When transporting a horse, it is important to remember some tips that will make the process of shipping safely and reliable. Shipping a horse and preparing it for this process requires planning several days before departure if you're doing it right.

Your horse must be taken care of during the shipping process. It is needed to care for these animals properly to keep them happy and healthy during travel. It is also important to choose a carrier for your horse. In many cases horses are shipped by horse trailer. As you need a lot of time to prepare your horse for shipping, begin training your horse to trailer well before it needs to travel. When choosing a horse carrier, check their legal authority to ship horses and ask about their standard practices.

Make sure your horse is in good physical health before shipping. You won't be able to ship your horse if it is injured or sick. You risk aggregating your horse's condition or passing the illness to other animals. Visit the veterinarian as you need to get health certificates. It is required to do this even if your horse carrier does not require certificates.

The following are tips that will help you prepare your horse before transportation:
1) It is important to teach your horse to load and unload well before the trip. This will be useful even in case of a medical emergency.

2) Don't forget to check your horse's shoes and ask your transporter's advice on bandaging.

3) Avoid tranquilization, unless specifically recommended by your vet.

4) Plan your horse shipment so that your horse has plenty time to relax and rest when it arrives.

If it is allowed to ship extra things along with the horse, then be sure to label your things and make a list to be given to the transporter and the person receiving the horse. Do everything to make the process of shipping more comfortable and safely for your horse. Pay attention to all tips and arrange everything before transportation.
