Omschrijving webinar

Around the world, hundreds of thousands of horses are shipped annually by road, both by commercial and private vans and trailers. Most of these journeys have a happy ending, but unfortunately still too many horses and humans get injured or killed on the road. Even apparently successful journeys, on examination, reveal increased hormonal stress levels, gut microbiome changes, and respiratory challenges. Many of these accidents, injuries, and physiological changes could have been avoided by developing safer transport designs, creating international standards for van and trailer manufacturers, ensuring correct use and better maintenance of the equipment, and appropriate training of the handlers and drivers. ATA has invited specialists in those fields to discuss different aspects of horse safety during road transport and possible actions to be taken to ensure that more of our equine friends make it home safely.
