I need a new trailer, we're having too many issues with my straight load right now. My post, in case you're wondering: Trailering--Help??. I have been looking into stock trailers, and found they're cheaper than a slant load. I have a couple questions about them though.
Would you recommend a stock trailer for hauling a younger horse? My horse is having some fear issues with our straight load right now.
What are the pros/cons of a stock?
Now my real question is how do you even load a horse in a stock trailer? I'm a little confused about this. Normally cattle are loaded just free standing, right? They're not locked in, like in a slant load? How would you do this with a horse??
I just need some clarification on this!
