How to drive with the horse
Carrying a living being is very different from transporting an object, especially when it comes to an animal with the size and strength of a horse, and the success of transport is in the hands and experience of the staff because the horse can be a danger also for others.
We know well that the horse does not tolerate being transported, the escapes are not so rare and an animal of the size of the horse fleeing on a busy road can constitute a danger of the highest level.
Finally, if we consider the average value of a transported horse it becomes logical not to save to have a good transporter with experience and ability.
It is also important to know how to get the horse on the van. On this page you can read our advice. Thanks.

How to drive with the horse. Our advices
It is necessary to adopt a slow and prudent guide because the horse inside the van is standing, without the possibility of seeing the road and on the horseshoes and this is enough to understand how the guide cannot be that of every day and it is necessary proceed without abrupt maneuvers and avoid sudden changes in force.
How to drive with the horse. Accelerations and…
Accelerations and braking must be slow and modular, facing the curves with the utmost caution and moderating speed, both to avoid serious risks and to avoid the wind-churning noises and excessive turbulence in the van.
It happens very often that you think you have driven very gently but then you realize that the horse is very tried by the journey and this indicates that the sweetness in driving was not enough.
It has been shown that the same horse transported under the same conditions by different drivers had significantly different heart rates due to the different driving characteristics of the driver, more or less aggressive, which stress the horse differently.
This is because often the driver of a trailer is not a professional driver and it is, in most cases, the owner of the horse himself, used to driving every day, without the perception of the effects of each maneuver on the horse being transported.
How to drive with the horse. Take a test
A fun test to understand what the horse feels is to have the driver sit in the van and drive, obviously in an area closed to traffic, braking, bending and accelerating.
Probably it will remain engraved in his mind as it is difficult to keep his balance in the trailer and could influence his driving style.
