Slant trailer question....

I'm thinking about removing divider in slant because I drive just one horse and it'll have more space to move around. Does it sound crazy? And if I do where should I tie her? (closer of further from driver)

Val, I use a small stock trailer that has no center divider and tie my horse at the head of the trailer on the left side. My horses automatically slant themselves since they find it more comfortable to travel that way.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Thanks, iride!

And just to add to my original post... I did some research and they seem to prefer to have more space to stand comfortably. Thats a reason I want to remove it for now.
