BeneFab™ debuts at the PA National Horse Show 2013! No matter what level event, what discipline is being competed, where it is, or when it is, there is one thing in common about every horse show... The competitors must travel there with their horses. As we watch the competitors, we know that these people worked exceptionally hard to make it to this national event. Juniors, Adults, and Professionals join us for their year end event that sums up their efforts and a portion of their accomplishments throughout this show season (and we are so excited to be a part of it!!!). Horse shows are stressful for rides and horses alike. Some horses travel better than others, but regardless, for the sake of great horsemanship, our job as riders, owners, and/or trainers is to insure our horses are careful and comfortable while traveling. So, what are some primary things that equine professionals recommend to insure safety and comfort for your athletic partner so that they are performing to the best of their ability (despite being completely out of their general routine)??
We have done some comprehensive research to relay to you some helpful hints for trailering/traveling with your horse.
