Slant load Q?

Hope this doesn't sound stupid. If I am trailering 1 horse in a 2 horse slant can I remove the divider to give him more space or will that just give him nothing to brace against on the left side and cause him to fall?

When I travel with one horse, I'll secure the divider against the right wall so that my horse can position herself in a slant position. If I couldn't secure the divider, then I would remove it if possible. I find that horses will always move into a slant position even in an open stock trailer.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I prefer to leave the divider in there so the horse does have something to brace against. JMO.

usually the dividers just swing against the walk if you want to make it open....... Never heard of taking them out, except in stock trailers.....
