So for those of you who have a straight load trailer how do you get the horses on and off? Our has the pins on the bum bar. I had one horse who flew out the back when I was trying to load them, I did up the halter then off they went out the back broken halter and all. Glad it was leather because the horse was flipping out.
Then to unload ..undue the back first then I walked up to their head but that doesn't work. Then I had a horse flip out when I undid the clip at the halter and walked over to the back of the trailer. I am a little curious on how to do this, I love slant loads, my next trailer will be one!! You can do it all by yourself its super easy. And most of the time you can turn the horse around so they don't have to back out.
I always have someone with my I have never been alone trailering but there will be a time when I will be and will know how the hell to get a horse off safely. I know usually there are people who can help exc. But just in case. How do I approach it to be safe and a good experience.
I have heard people will attach a lead rope to the halter then go threw the trailer (not around ) so kind of deeking under the dividers and then undue the back like that so the horses head isn't ever not attached to something.
Any tips, advice or storys you have on how to do this would be super helpfull.
