02 Feb Winter Shipping Tips
Depending on who you talk to, you will find many different strategies on how to prepare your horse(s) for shipping during the winter months. We aren’t going to tell you that our way is the proper way to ship in all situations, but we know our trailers and know what works best when shipping with us.
We prefer that the horse ships without a blanket. Surprisingly enough, the horses generate enough heat on their own while inside the trailer. Their body heat combined with the heat the other horses on the shipment emit does a very good job keeping the trailer warm due to the insulation we use. Depending on what your horse’s destination is, he/she could get too hot during the trip which could result in sickness.
If you would prefer to ship your horse with a blanket we will accommodate your request. If you have questions or are ready to schedule your shipment, contact us today!
