While the statues are not heavy they do require some considerations when transporting. Two people can easily move them about, depending upon the venue. Even with a protective clear-coat they should be protected during transport to prevent scratching. Horses for Humanities teams have utilized cargo vans, pickup trucks and horse trailers to have their statue travel. In considering the trailer it's important to include the height of the base when determining whether or not the trailer will accommodate the statue.
