So I recently purchased my first trailer, a Featherlite straight load. We did a short 15 minute run two weeks ago where my horse had no issues. Last week, we travelled a good 40 miles highway to a show. We was quiet in the trailer, but when it came time to put him back in and go home, he got a little stupid and kept shooting back out while I was trying to hook him up inside. This went on for a good 5 minutes before a nearby nice person helped me by shutting the door behind him. Once he was in, he was quiet and remained quiet all the way home. He unloaded like it was all good. I may just have tried to load him too quickly since he had just finished his naughty horse jumping round and was still a little lit up. He has always been a champ about trailering, so it just got me concerned that maybe he isn't too fond of his new ride.
Anyway, here's the idea. The divider comes completely out. I'm thinking when he's traveling alone, take it out and let him ride stock style to he has more room and can stand however he wants. I'm thinking still tie him so I don't have a constantly shifting load, but I'm not sure. Thoughts?
