Yeah, you always want the weight towards the center of the road (if only one horse) so that in case you slip off the road a bit, you won't get yanked off completely.
I have a two horse trailer (aka, the "Rust Chariot :) and just got both my horses into it last night for the first time. Annie had already been transported in it, but not Belle. It was a tight squeeze, but amazingly they fit fine.
Yeah I've loaded horses before when I showed with the pony club, but that was about 6 years ago. Now im getting a horse I need to brush up on a bit of knowledge. I don't know what sort of horse im getting yet, I need one that jumps well and enjoys it though but appart from that I don't really mind.
P.s. Love your horses I loved coloured horses ;)
I am sort of in the same boat as you...I had horses my whole life, then my grandparents died and the farm was sold. I have been "out" of the horse thing for 10 years, then finally decided to get a horse again last year.
This forum has really helped me remember stuff I used to know, plus give me new info on stuff I never knew.
I can't wait to see whatever new horse you decide on!
Yeah me too! Im re-learning old stuff and learning something new. I spose the best test will be owning and looking after my own horse. I've been riding for 10 years (im 17) and I've never owned one, its a dream come true... literally :)
