1. It’s A Marathon Not A Sprint
Time will definitely play a big role when it comes to relocating with your horses. Once the idea of moving becomes more probable, go ahead and begin planning out your move. You can start the process by packing up one section of your barn at a time, that way you won’t become overwhelmed closer to your moving date.
It’s also important to make sure that you have all of the paperwork and medication for them, especially if you are moving to an area that is further away. To avoid clutter or having too many boxes, you can even consider selling any of your unwanted items!

2. Organization Will Be Your BFF
When moving day finally arrives, being organized will be essential to a stress-free transition! The best way to assure you stay organized is by preparing a “moving survival kit”, with all of your valuables, horse’s records, and a good amount of feed and medications.
In case of an emergency along the way, it’s best to keep a list of important contacts close by. This means your currrent veterinarian, farrier, real estate agent, or any other professional contacts you may have. It also doesn’t hurt to have local contacts listed for your new area.

3. Take It Easy After The Move
Once you’ve finally made it to your new home the most difficult part will be over! Instead of becoming overwhelmed by unpacking, and setting up everything in your new barn, just take it one day at a time. Go for a ride or take your horses on a walk to help them get used to the new environment.
Stay consistent with their bedding, forage, exercise, and feeding schedules as well to help prevent any further stress on them. It will take some time for you and your horses to get used to the new surroundings, but having patience will do wonders for the relocation journey.
