    Question Trailer???

    Sorry I put this in the wrong catagory I just didnt know where to post it at. I was just wondering if it is ok to keep a horse in a two horse trailer over night if I take out the separater and I walk him before I put him in the trailer and again early in the morning.

    I think he should be fine, I would opent the top two doors for fresh air, untie him, and make sure there's shaving/straw on the bottom, or even just open one top door(if you can, lots of trailers have different doors) and leave it hooked to the truck. One night won't be a problem!

    He'll be fine. I have a two horse that doubles as a stall if I can't pay the outrageous stall rental fees for the stalls at the show grounds. :)

    If you can, why not tie him to the outside of the trailer? I would be leary of letting a horse loose in a two stall horse trailer, simply because most of them are not nearly wide enough for a horse to turn around in...he could wind up injuring himself if he tries.

    That's just my humble opinion on it. I tie mine outside the trailer if I can't find a decently priced 'horse camp' for her. That way the horse can shift around quite bit, without the worry of slipping or over bending his body in the trailer. I eventually want to get one of those portable stalls for when I travel, that way the horse can move around freely and lay down without the fear of getting stuck there.

    I would usually opt to tie instead of leave in the trailer, but depends on the horse. I think if they are calm and comfortable in there, it would be fine. . . But, I have had a pony actually climb out over the back door of a parked 2 horse trailer when I left him inside, loose, with hay, thinking that would be more comfortable for him!
