An estimated 70-80% of the entire immune system resides in the gut. Nourishing beneficial bacteria can help support nutrient absorption, optimal immunity and general digestive health.
Tips for Traveling
Help your horse cope with the stress of traveling
Never transport a sick horse or one exposed to sickness long distances.
Supplement with an immune support formula a few days before travel.
Try to travel less than 12 hours at a time.
If possible, stop every 3 to 4 hours to offer rest — unload and allow the horse to briefly graze. If not, just stopping is beneficial to the horse, as he won’t be forced to counter the movement of the trailer.
Offer water every time you stop.
Provide adequate airflow in the trailer for ventilation.
Allow your horse approximately 2 to 3 days to recover after a long trip before expecting a great deal of activity.
