Rosie, I strongly advise you to teach your horses how to load in a two horse straight load without a ramp and how to step out backwards. You never know when a situation (accident) may happen and the horses need to be loaded in to such a trailer. Horses that have been taught to unload will come out quietly and will feel their way out.

Saddlebag, my horses will load on without a ramp, and will step out backwards. I just don't like this configuration, and when I get my next trailer I want to get my preference rather than my compromise.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
