Travel Prep for a Nervous Horse

If you are going to take your horse on a long road trip across state lines make sure you and your horse are fully prepared. Days before you plan to travel, introduce your horse to getting on and off the trailer. This will help him be less nervous on the actual day of travel. You may even want to trailer your horse for a short distance to help ease his nerves and help him adjust to eating hay while moving. If your horse moves around a lot in the trailer, consider buying travel boots to protect his legs. Nervous horses have a habit of moving and bumping into the trailer sides when traveling. Safety helmets are also available for nervous horses that may toss their head in the trailer. Your veterinarian Pickerington, OH may recommend placing the travel helmet on your horse for short amounts of time each day to help him adjust.
