There is NO one answer. You had A horse and load situation that worked well and YOU took the time and effort to LEARN for you and your horse. You have an usual situation that YOU and your horse worked out.
I still have to go back to.... trailer makers don't sell single horse double wides for ONE horse. No support. I still have to ask you.... ride in a double wide with center out for 3 hours.
