A trip to the vet. A horse show or competition. Evacuating your horses due to a natural disaster. All of these things require some form of transportation for your horse. So how will you get him from one destination to the next?  

Last week, we asked our readers how they haul or ship their horses. More than 950 people responded, and we’ve tallied the results!  

Of the 964 respondents, 716 (74%) said they own a horse trailer. Another 67 individuals (7%) said they catch a trailer ride with a friend when they need to haul their horse, while 57 (6%) said they hire a commercial hauler. Some 53 individuals (5%) said they borrow a trailer if they need to move their horse, and the remaining 71 respondents (7%) said they do not have a need to transport their horse.
