Hello Jessica, I would like to begin by saying I love your newsletter. I just have one quick question when trailering your horse in a two horse trailer which side should the (one horse only) be in. The left side or the right? Thank You, Wanda
It also depends on the horse. ;-) Most horses, given a choice, would prefer to ride with their bodies angled across the full width of a two-horse trailer. If you have one horse to haul, and your two-horse trailer has a center partition that can be removed, why not take out the partition and allow the horse as much room as possible in the trailer? He'll travel more comfortably and be less stiff and sore when he arrives.
