Tying in a trailer

Ok I am picking up a horse tomorow and from what I understand she HATES the trailer. She gets very nervous and scared. Exactly how she reacts I do not know. What do you do tie or no tie?

I think it depends on trailer. I found out they are more relaxed when loose free in stock trailer. I'm not sure about 2horse one though - I've never seen horses being untied in straight load.

I don't tie in the trailer. In your situation I'm not sure which way I would go. I had to transport a 2 year old I had sold that was just getting used to the trailer. I rode with her for the first few miles to see how she went. After I decided she wasnt going to kick my trailer apart I let her be. She was untied too.

I don't tie in the trailer; we use a slant-load with a full door.

We moved her in a stock trailer not tied and had no problem, she got in like a dream. I was SHOCKED!

Wonderful! I was hoping all would go well. Its always good to hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
