After hearing 2 horror stories this past week of 2 separate incidents of horses going over the breast bars in trailers, I have come to the conclusion that I need to re-configure the ones in my trailer. Right now my Exiss has a padded bar with loops at each end and caribeners that attach them. What is the best type of breast bar configuration to have installed in the event that a horse either gets a leg over the breast bar or (God forbid!) ends up with the front half crammed in front of the bar? I have even thought of using plastic baling twine on one side. It won't break, but I sure could cut it quickly with a knife.
