    Since I do NATRC I have no choice but to tie to a trailer, but I know my mare well enough to know that she needs to be tied and better tied to a trailer than a picket or in a corral. She tends to pace and move a lot when at liberty. At home I leave her out except for feeding times and only use her stall for when I need to be clean and stationary for my convenience. I know that she knows about electric b/c in KY that was the kind of fencing we had. But I'm not sure I'd trust my corral to leave her in it overnight. I think we'd have to practice first.

    Do horses tend to colic any more or less when tied vs. corral?

    When I first started endurance I thought those that tied to the trailer
    almost inhumane :-p I mean, how could anyone just tie them to the
    trailer like that? Can't they see they need to move? I mean just because
    people have  been doing that since the beginning of time doesn't mean it
    should still go on, right?
