Ok. Finally was able to go back and make this public in case you tried to watch and was noted to be private. Thought it to be pretty cool how effortlessly the horse loaded into that tall truck.
A lot of stock trucks and trailers have cattle panels laid on the floor to keep animals from slipping. My cowboy husband when he was in the Dakotas saw horses on country roads just riding in the back of pickups looking over the top of the cab.That is a good horse to load like that, must do a lot of trailering.
The only problem I can think of is when he jumps out and if the floor of the truck is at all slippery his hind feet can slip on him and maybe pull something. I have seen this happen with lower jumps so could happen here.
In a pickup, full sized flatbed, or both?Our ranch string does this.
3/4 and 1 ton pickups. Full-size flatbeds won't fit in some of the places we go either. Heck, sometimes the pickups can't go, but we knock off as many miles as we can.Jumping into the back of a pickup, even a 4wd, is one thing, but into/onto a tall flatbed is something. I built a horse rack for my pickup and mentioned to some ranch people that knew my horse about how I was thinking about a step/ramp. They laughed and said Keno won't need no ramp.
