    Why would somebody want to try to load someone else's horse on a trailer?

    I'll tell you why. Because she's afraid of the horse and she wanted to look like she knew what she was doing. She's one of those people who will tell you how to do everything but if you were to ever tell her something she'd be offended. She's always telling me the mistakes I make when I ride, so to be a smart &$$ I always tell her to get on my horse and show me. She never does because she isn't used to riding a horse who can actually canter ( what I'm saying is she's scared).

    I was going to post saying perhaps it didn't occur to her she was crossing a line by handling another persons horse, but I changed my mind. I can't think of a single person I know who would think it ok to mess with someone elses horse without the owners permission...

    Anyway, OP, did you say anyting at the time about how it is inappropriate to try to load someone elses horse? Or try to train a horse in a way the owner does not approve of? Tell her why it was a dumb idea and tell her never to handle your horses again without clear consent from you and you alone. Then take the moral high ground and ask her politly if she would like to learn how to load her own horse properly.

    Never know, she might be humbled enough by your rant for a moment to learn something, instead of pretending she knows it all already.

    Re the hooked to a truck bit, I remember going to hire a trailer once & it was so light & perhaps imbalanced that when my friend & I both stood in the 'escape door' at the front, it tipped up!! I wouldn't consider a float like that safe even when hooked to a vehicle. When I was in the market for one I passed over anything that wasn't stable & heavy enough to safely load a horse without hooking up. Tho I still chock it with bricks when I use it like this, for Justin.
    LOL- I can be. I don't sweat the small stuff like cheating boyfriends or forum disagreements but if anyone messed with my horses I have an inner demon that emerges.

    Yep, I've seen a few trailers like the one you described. I wonder who buys those?
