    Did you know???

    Horses are more comfy when facing the rear of the trailer they are riding in.

    Some horses like standing with their rears to the front of the trailer, but I have found that all my horses like standing in a slant trailer best.
    Guess they're like anything else - everyone has a different preference :)

    I have seen horses who are like that. My horses all seem pretty happy to stand forwards in our slant load.

    My wb prefers to face backwards...he told me so j/k :) we were practice loading him the other day in preparation for our move to the pony club and he wouldnt go in forwards and in the commotion he ended up swinging around and running into the float backwards lol he was quite content to stand there after that :)

    My horse doesn't care either way. LOL! She doesn't really have a preference.

    Joe usually is at a slant in a 4 horse trailer and has always had a buddy next to him. He is an excellent loader for being so young and not traveling a lot.
