Re: [RC] [RC] Hauling horses cross-country in August? - Raven

Hi Jennifer....I think most horses do just fine being hauled...non
stop for 3-4, but ...honestly, I would not do it.

If these were my horses, I would prefer that they are stalled or
paddocked over nite to give them a chance to rest/lay down and sleep.

The heat alone...IMHO...will leave them exhausted, not to mention the
road travel. I once read somewhere that one hour drive in a trailer is
like trail riding 3-4 hours, due to the horse's needing to constantly
balance themselves.

Anywho...I'm no expert and I am sure that you will get some great
advice & suggestions from other members.  Good luck with the move!

Raven ( who may move from WI to CA before the year is over)
