I have a 1999 1500 5.3 v8. I pull a 16' bumper pull stock trailer and I have hauled 4 horses in my 16' trailer with no problem. I have the brake system as well too. Just start stopping in advance. The truck will stop fine and such just don't push your luck if you have a lead foot :P

I mean with the right trailer, alum preferably, you can haul alot more than you think with the 1/2 ton. Like I said 16' trailer and 4 horses with ease. On the highway you will only be able to do like 65 though(which I would recommend you not trying to haul any faster) as anything more and you will watch the gas hand fall pretty fast.

I have a 16ft stock and pulled it from MD to Tx and back with a ram 1500 5.2. No issues as the truck was set up for towing..Gets slow going through mountains but otherwise no problems.. I can haul 4 but I moved my center gate up 2 feet and use the front now for tack space and load 2 on the back...The reason I moved the gate was with 2 on the back the way it was it would fish tail..So moving the gate up put the horses over the axles. If I need to haul more I open the gate and tie it back and slant load them...
