    Not looking for any fighting just debating.

    Get the horse in cause he got more room and no support cause it is easier.... or take the time and train the horse in a safer and secure environment.

    The horse should not be leaning on any part of the trailer. 1. That is a great way for him to find each and every cut, scratch, and bruise inducing piece in the trailer. 2. The horse can become afraid and refuse to load because he has no stability in the trailer.

    Horse trailers have a divider to separate multiple horses. I have seen tons of one horse trailers that are wide enough for two.

    How exactly does one train a horse to ride correctly in a trailer btw(for whoever said to train him to stand in a trailer, I don't remember)? Stand in the moving trailer with him and correct him when he begins to scramble, wiggle, or paw?? A moving trailer and a standing trailer are completely different. The best you can do is try everything you can to make him more comfortable and secure, trial and error.

    I guess that was me in post 19, where I said maybe he needs to learn how to ride in a strait load. I would say, they learn by doing it and we make it as safe as possible to do so.
