The support is from the horse itself, he is stronger bracing sideways.

I'd rather figure out the problem from the HORSE'S point of view.

How many trailers should I buy? Ever wonder why major/good trailer makers DON'T make a double wide.... with lots of room for a single horse?

You tell us. Go ride in one for 3 or 4 hours.

I'm not looking for a fight.
Sometimes horses need more room.

When he has something to "BRACE" against.

To each his own, I am not going to debate it, I am also not going to have a scraped up horse or a horse that ever refuses to load, after my experience with a straight haul, any old stock trailer will do for me. Ok, ok, I did just buy a brand new slant load but that was treating myself, but the stock trailer I did have was an unsung hero, no horse ever refused to load in it and my show mare that had convulsions & fell to her knees in the straight haul, went back to being her no fuss loader, traveller again.

(tongue out making a sound..... Again... I KNOW the size of your horses and that you use a horse shoe horn. They VERY supported and braced.)

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.
