Re: [RC] [RC] trailers/backward - Beth Walker

Well, from what I've been reading, I'll have to agree. ?It's just what I was told, but it seems as if lots of people haul backwards with no problems. ?I stand corrected.

Sorry, that must be a myth. I've hauled backwards for years. Haven't had a trailer get messed up for it yet. Also, stock trailers are made for them to ride any which way. When we've hauled cows they run around that trailer like it's an arena--trailer still works. (And yes, I haul backwards in a Sundowner also, with a back tack--it still works too. :o))

The trailer needs to be designed for that. ?Otherwise, you put the
weight in the wrong place, and the trailer can get unbalanced. ?Not
too many trailers are made for a horse to ride backwards.
