I say NO in a two horse. I have done it with a 20 ft 4 horse trailer countless times to work on unloading/backing out of the tailer with my horse. But it was a big trailer. If its just a little 2 horse or one with a short wheel base I say absolutely not. Waaaaay too many things could go wrong and then you'd REALLY have trailering issues with your horse.

Agreed. I've done it with my old pony but she was used to being loaded she just need to not rush out of it but I had a huge trailer and she was a pony. I would not do this unless its hooked up.

Eh, with a two-horse I'd say hook up before loading any horses.

My Brenderup has a nomenclature right by the hitch that says to NEVER load an unhitched trailer or unhitch a loaded trailer. Better safe than sorry.

Depends on your Bp. Mine doesnt need a truck to be secure. I have practiced loading my mare hundreds of times with not a single issue. But she isnt spooky about the trailer, she just needs a little help getting in. I would talk to the trailer manufacturer or the garage you get it inspected at.

Unless I'm giving the backing up directions.. It took half an hour +

PP does it

Pat Parelli has trailers in his fields so that he can practice loading. PP doesn't risk the safety of his horses, so I know there's a way to secure a trailer aside from its being hooked to a truck. I could never see, on dvd's, how he did it. You might have luck calling their toll-free # & asking!

But they'll probably charge you three easy payments of $99.95 for your question.
