Horse transport for Thorough bred mares going to a stallion is in high demand as AI is not allowed in the racing industry. The mare has to be covered “naturally” by the stallion and due to the extremely high value of both horses the covering process is somewhat of an artform. The mare gets scanned to check if she is at the right stage in her cycle, the stud contact the horse transporter and give him a rough estimate of when the mare will need to go to the stallion. This is followed up with another scan to ensure the mare is definitely ready to go to the stallion and when she is the horse transporter has to take her to the stallion straight away.
A tricky business for horse transport but fantastic work none the less!
Today I took a beautiful bay mare from beechwood grange stud to a stallion standing in Newmarket at Cheveley Park stud.
