Information

**BLM suggests using stock trailers with side-swinging gates. Stock trailers with center dividers are acceptable, however, multiple dividers must be removed before horses can be transported in the trailer. The BLM will not allow adopted horses to be transported in two-horse trailers or loaded into trailers that have loading ramps.
