3 Must-Haves for Traveling with Your Horse This Labor Day Weekend
Planning a trail ride? Or taking your horse to visit friends? Make sure you do these three things first before you go in order to stay safe and have a great holiday.
1. Perform a pre-trip checklist.
Working with Dr. Tomas Gimenez, retired professor of animal and veterinary sciences at Clemson University, and Dr. Rebecca Gimenez, an animal physiologist and primary instructor in technical large-animal emergency rescue, USRider has been gathering and analyzing data about horse trailer accidents for the last eight years. From this data, Drs. Gimenez and USRider have gleaned some pertinent recommendations for preventing accidents and enhancing the safety of horses while traveling.
This information has been compiled in a handy Pre-Trip Checklist for Horse Trailers. The checklist is conveniently available to smartphone users on USRider’s mobile website. Simply access www.usrider.org from any smartphone and the list is handily at your fingertips to check prior to each trip. More info...

Trail Riding in Ocala National Forest
Horseback trail riding in the Ocala National Forest is an exciting experience during all times of the year. During the summer, trails are shaded by the rich tree canopy overhead. In the wintertime the trails are protected from cool winds by the lush undergrowth on either side of the trail. And of course most of the time the weather is great in Florida and so is getting out there on your horse.
