After years of owning a straight load, I recently purchased a used 2 horse slant step up gooseneck trailer with front tack room.
My question is Where do I put the horse if I am only hauling one horse? In the front 'stall' near the tack room, or the rear 'stall' by the back doors?-
With my bumper pull I always put only one horse OR the heaviest horse in the middle slant compartment because that's what's over the axle of the trailer. So, following that logic, I'd say to put it over the axle for the most balanced handling of the trailer or the road.
I guess that makes more sense now that you guys mention it...
When I was driving forklift and loading trucks and it wasn't a full load, I would divide it up and load the front of the trailer over the drive axles of the truck and the back over the trailer axles.
