TheHorse.com Presents Free Ask the Vet LIVE Q&A: Healthy, Safe Trailering
Lexington, Ky. (July 15, 2011)—Generally, trailering or shipping your horse is a lot more risky than traveling with only humans. What can you do to make sure you and your horse arrive safely and legally at your destination, and how can you ensure your horse is healthy and ready to tackle the show, trail, or whatever awaits? Find out during our free Ask the Vet LIVE online Q&A chat about Healthy, Safe Trailering on Tuesday, Aug. 2, from 8-9 p.m. Eastern U.S. time (5-6 p.m. Pacific)!
