I have a (was) four horse, enclosed 'horse' trailer that I have removed all
the dividers. If I am camping with one horse and the wind and/or wet is
especially bad I have put him in for the night. He has plenty of room
forward and back, but it is standard width, and he has to bend pretty good
to turn around. I've never had any problems with this, but haven't done it
more than a few times. would be interested to know what others have
experienced. I am always careful to put feed/water at opposite ends.

???? little flashing lights might do better, but would require homework.
as been my experience that most horses would run thru a brick wall in a
panic or a 'really-good-time-with-the-loose-gang-in-the-dark'. at least
flashing may get their attention.??
