Horse Float Education

  • Train your horse to load and unload happily

  • Advice on towing

  • Horse float design

  • The right gear to use when floating

  • Floating methods


Why do i need Horse float Education?

  • Safety for horse, handler and everyone in the area when loading, unloading and travelling. Accidents involving horse floats are normally quote significant.

  • Both people and horses become nervous and/or short tempered, this not only escalates safety problems, but sets all concerned up for a bad day.

  • Loading problems make you run late which can put you under alot of pressure when competing. It kills all the fun if you have to scehdule an extra 2 hours loading time every time you take your horse out, not to mention should the horse need to be transported in the case of an emergency.

  • The embarassment of attracting every "wanna be" expert plus dozens of onlookers.

  • Injuries due to traumatic travelling can cause the horse to be scratched from the race / event which is very costly and no fun.

  • Make your horses transport experience as pleasant as possible considering that a horse float is one of the most unnatural environments that you could expose him/her to.

  • Horse and handlers/riders are trained to perform any other task so it's correct to teach them to float.

  • Outings can be easy and stress free when both horse and handler are educated.
