If I were taking a horse to a competition I wouldn't leave it in the
trailer!  I do NATRC CTR and since all horses in the competition have to be
stabled the same, that same is typically having the horse tied to the
trailer. ( Actually, I really don't like those portable corrals or electric
corrals -- they are used a lot at endurance rides and I see too many horses
get loose).  I've competed a number of horses now and  none have had any
problems being tied to the trailer -- with the lead rope left long enough
that the snap comes just above the ground the horse can lie down, roll,
move around a bit:  they all think of the side of the trailer as home.
