AVMA Letter on Horse Transport to 112th Congress (June 22, 2011)
AVMA Letter on Horse Tranport to Rep. Harris (June 21, 2011)
The AVMA is in support of the banning the interstate transportation of horses in double-decker horse trailers. AVMA has been supportive of this legislation in the past and it is consistent with the AVMA policy on Humane Transport of Equines. The AVMA believes trailers on the road containing two or more levels to transport horses are not adequately equipped to humanely meet the space needs of a horse.
