[RC] Trailering - Stagg_Newman


Try taking out the divider.  We had a problem with thoroughbred
who scrambled like crazy until we eliminated the divider.  We removed
the divider so she could spread out and solved the problem.  We have
never used dividers since that time.  Hope this work for you.

BTW I personally do not like slant loads as too many vets have told
me they have seen horses coming to rides with "slant horse trailer
lameness.  So even though we bought a slant load, we removed
the dividers ....

(and now I have probably really started a controvesary)

   We are having a trailering problem with a 9 yo gelding we've owned a =
little over a year.  Our trailer is a two horse slant load with a =
divider between the two horses.  The problem is that when we haul him =
and go down even a slight incline he panics and scrambles with his feet. =
