    Sorry, my question was poorly worded. When I asked about loading on a 'regular' two horse, I meant a 'regular' Balanced Ride (versus the side ramp in front), not a standard trailer. I understand you...

    I am looking at bumper pull, straight load trailers with side and rear ramps (is that what is referred to as 2+1?) and I think saw your post on the other thread.
