    Question If you were me...

    If you were me, and you were trailering a 2 year old clydesdale filly halfway across country.... unsure of how well she will do in the trailer... straight-shoot, 2 horse trailer with the divider at a diagonal, would you use trailer ties?
    I have cross ties for the trailer, as well as a single bungie (stretch) tie. I haven't decided which ones to use, but was planning on securing them with twine so if she freaks out, the twine will break. What would YOU do?

    YES use ties. I have heard of horses h not have ties on and rearing and flipping over.

    Just to be safer, I think that I would use ties. Just to keep her from moving around too terrible much and it may give her a sense of security, I don't know.

    Oh, and I want pix as soon as you get her home.

    I would tie- but make sure she is able to get head head somewhat down just in case she needs to cough or relax a bit. I hate it when people have their horses heads tied way up when in the trailer.
