I don't know a lot of the details about the trailer. Its a circle J, '95... so older. I know my husband redid the floor and such when we got it. It is a snug fit because he is very wide. When loading we open all the doors and swing the divider so that he has as much room as possible. I'm going to have my friend bring over her 3 horse slant stock and work with him to see how he does with it.

That's not such a bad trailer. When you trailer him, do you use the divider or leave it off to the side?

We always take him with our mare. So yes the divider is closed at that point. But he never relaxes in the trailer. Short or long he is in a sweat and you can feel him rocking... its so bad that the truck moves when at a stop sign!! Everyone keeps saying he'll get over it, but he is getting worse not better.

I sometimes think some horses can't really get themselves balanced to their satisfaction in a straight load. It shall be interesting to see how he goes in your friend's trailer then.
