Transporting your horse

Transporting, or vanning your horse should pose no problems as long as the driver is experienced and your horse is well-protected. The usual mode of transportation is the horsebox, the interior of which is padded. In addition, the horse should wear blanket, knee caps, hock boots, poll guard and travel and tail bandages. Many horses allow themselves to be led into the box quite easily, though some horses are more nervous and must be loaded with help. For long journeys, a hay net hung within easy reach can keep horses from becoming restless.
