TRANSPORT FEATURE 2019: Safety first for all aspects of equine transport
on 25 January 2019
10-page special feature explaining what you need to know about transporting your horse, whether you are going down the road or around the world

AS the 2019 season gets under way, we have compiled some top tips and expert advice about all things transport-related.

Whether you are new to horses and are looking into purchasing a horsebox or truck, or if you are wondering what driver’s licence you need to tow a horsebox or drive a truck or if you are considering a big trip overseas and are wondering what you need to consider, this feature has it all.

Safety is the most important factor when it comes to transporting horses, no matter how long or short the journey is.

If you are unsure about any aspect of your vehicle, trailer or lorry safety, get a professional opinion immediately and do not use the vehicle for transporting horses until it has been checked.

All drivers should also be aware of the different driving licence categories and what they are legally permitted to drive.

There are driving schools around Ireland who specialise in towing and truck lessons to help make sure you are driving on the correct licence.
