Asking a horse to step onto the ramp of a trailer or lorry and be tied up in a sealed unit which moves is pretty much as far removed from his natural state as is possible. Yet these beautiful animals put their trust in humans, overcoming the programmed fear/flight response that would typically cause them to flee from the perceived danger that travelling represents.
It is also important to remember that a poor travelling experience can serious hinder the performance of both horse and rider. No matter how much training you’ve put in, if the journey to the competition leaves either of you feeling anxious, stressed or just out of sorts neither of you will be capable of delivering your best. Given these facts, don’t you think you owe it to your horse and yourself to seek out the most comfortable, reliable and inherently safe travelling system possible?
