Same way you do in a straight load two horse.  You can run a lunge line or 
long rope forward to keep the horse directed, and then urge from the back.  
(Don't try to PULL the horse in by the head--that is when they pull back and 
object.)  Only difference is that we don't HAVE to teach them this in a slant 
load, since we CAN walk in easily, so we frequently don't.  But it's a good 
idea, since you never know but what you might have to be trailered in from a 
vet check someday in a straight load...
