I don't saddle up in a straight or slant load, only a stock. Also stock trailers don't come with tack compartments. So it;s ither inside the truck (if there's room) in the bed of the truck (if theres rooom, or if you even have a bed, we have a flat bed so its a no go there) or on the horse (perfect!!!)
Also, when working cattle, especially when hauling to action, you're often on time constraints because you need to get multiple loads of cattle to the auction barn and need to get them there before it closes. You don't have time to tack up and untack with each load.
