The Glovebox Guide to Transporting Horses is a comprehensive reference book specializing in all aspects of moving horses in trailers and lorries, from the driving licence requirements to handling horses. It has detailed chapters on buying trailers, towcars and lorries, what to do if things go wrong, maintenance, loading and unloading. The book also contains information and tips on driving trailer outfits and lorries on today's busy roads, including coping with emergencies, accidents, bad weather and muddy showgrounds. It is designed both to be read by the novice before taking to the road and as a quick reference guide for all to be kept in the vehicle. It also includes checklists to ensure that you forget nothing when buying a vehicle, preparing for a trip or maintaining your transport.
