Horse Transportation Safety Act

Interstate transport of horses should be conducted as safely as possible.

Interstate transport of horses should be conducted as safely as possible.

HR 4440 and S 1459, known as the Horse Transportation Safety Act of 2013, would prohibit the transportation of horses in interstate commerce in motor vehicles containing two or more levels stacked on top of one another. Hauling horses in double-deck trailers is dangerous and inhumane. These trailers do not provide sufficient headroom for horses to stand upright. Also, there is always the possibility of accident or injury if the trailers collapse or are involved in roadway incidents.

Contact your senators and representatives urging them to support H 4440/S 1459, the Horse Transportation Safety Act of 2013.
