Walking horse off the stock trailer

Just wondering how to put lead rope on loose horse in stock trailer before letting her go? I mean do you go in through side door, put the rope, and then ask someone to open the back door? Do you open main door a little and put lead rope? I do it 2nd way with my qh, although I'm not sure my paint will be as cooperative and will try to open it wide from her side, so I'm thinking about other ways...

I don't have a stock trailer but I open the side door put the rope on Then either have someone else open the rear or if I'm by myself I just go back open the rear and grab the rope as she comes out. They can't turn in mine, they have to back out dragging the rope in front of them so it makes it easy to grab it as they back out.

I may be TOTALLY in need of a tounge lashing but depending on how far we are trailering the horses...I'll leave the lead on them, but we do that sometimes in the yard and my guys step in the lead and are like oops. Step off if and go on...I know its not "correct" but it works especially when we haul them to the saddle club and there are unfamiliar horses there and they don't want to pay attention to us... (saddle club is 6 miles away)

Other than that, I just walk in the trailer and clip the lead on. But my guys don't mind, I don't think I'd do that with horses I wasn't familiar with. We usually use a stock trailer and have em loose or a 4horse trailer without the dividers...same differance.
