Keeping your horse safe is your number one priority. Is your trailer safe, and do you know what your horse experiences during a collision? What are the protocols, your responsibilities and liabilities when involved in an accident, and laws around hauling? Do you know if the size and layout of your trailer provides your horse comfort and stability, or if is putting strain on their body, leading to potential injury?

Join us for a hands-on day of learning how to keep your horse as safe as possible and how to be prepared for the unthinkable.  $159.00
