Every year, around 50,000 horses are packed into trucks and driven needlessly long distances across Europe to slaughter. Traveling for days over thousands of miles with little chance to rest, eat or drink, these horses arrive at their destination exhausted, in pain, stressed, severely dehydrated and broken in spirit.
Balancing on a moving vehicle for 24 hours requires the horse to use a similar amount of energy as if they were walking for the same period of time.
The risk of exhaustion increases with journey time, making injury and disease more likely.
