It doesnt matter, just load the horse. The way goosenecks distribute loads. It just doesnt matter. You have two axels and a gooseneck, Either way the load is going to be divied up about the same.

I was thinking the same thing--that's why I said in the front because the way a gooseneck distributes weight I don't think it would totally matter with just one horse.

If it was a bumper pull that's a different story.

Even with a gooseneck you want your weight over the axles. Yes they do distribute the weight better but even so, the less weight on your pickup the less wear and tear it will get. Not a big deal per haul but when you add it up over thousands of miles it helps longevity.
