Thank you That is only for paid transport which is why I guess people with big horses cope with using small trailers. It also only refers to multi-deck transport with regard to the height restriction which seems odd.

Clava, whilst that pamplet is for paid transport it could also be brought to bare on non paid transport! just as driving hours regulations have!

But not currently, it clearly states it is just for transport for economic gain.

Technically so are the driving hours but they count any prize money at all as economic gain! My local show gives £5 for a first place. So when I go showing it counts as economic gain, even though the fuel probably costs me more than I wim

That is hilarious....economic gain someone was talking the other day about riding horses and winning cheap ribbons, I had to point out that while they maybe cheap to buy, by the time they are pinned on your horse they are very expensive..

Economic gain

We write from experience. Most of my ~35 horses over the years were good at trailering. A few were not. DH retrained our KMH to load better, but we loaded him to take him home when we bought from the breeder, without issues.
What do you want? Solutions? Carte blanche to "beat up" the people who couldn't load your horse?
Horses need training. If you are happy with your horse's training and just wanted to vent...ok.
If you want good advice, read all above posts.
Do as you wish. MY horses load well. =D

That could also include hauling someone else's horse and them paying for just the fuel costs.
