Ah. Price. That does matter. Lol. If you can afford it, I also vote slant! I have a 2 horse slant. I borrowed a 4 horse straight load this weekend & its awkward getting past the middle divider that goes between the horses, and also depending on the escape door. This trailer had a full size door up front. A small door in the back (it was over the wheels). It made me super glad I had a slant. Lol.

Not to hijack, but if you have a straight load with a moveable divider, is it better to slide over the divider and let the single horse stand at a slant? I'm thinking you want them "tucked in" safe whether it be straight or slant, but it's worth asking.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

If I had a 2 horse straight, and was hauling only 1, I would move the divider & let them stand at a slant. When given the choice, most horses will stand slanted, or backwards.

That being said, in the 4 horse I borrowed, I would still pit the weight up front, not one horse in each section.
