    Please don't take this the wrong way, but my first thought is to consult a good local pro trainer. In person they can see so much more than anyone can see/infer from a paragraph description online....

    What size trailer do you have in mind? What is the total weight of trailer + horses + tack/misc? It all depends on the trailer.

    Add me to the list of people who had really bad experiences with ac4h. :no:

    I know it's not what you were asking, but why not focus on why she is hanging on reins?

    Can you spend some lessons on teaching her better balance? Is it a physical strength/balance issue, do you...

    The 'Horses scared of the dark?' sentiment screams a BO who is very ignorant of horse care. It would be a red flag for me to examine everything else they do. What other kooky things are they doing...

    Sounds like he needs to be put into regular training. It's not your job/responsibility to try to fix an out-of-training horse and make him look great for your friend. Don't feel bad if he makes...

    Until someone gives you a deposit and/or signs a contract, I don't think you have an obligation to anyone to sell to a particular person first. I used to try to hold horses for people who said they...

    Share concerns with BO and see what policy she'd like to see everyone follow?

    Maybe a suggestion is to limit that trainer to 2 sets of cross ties: one for the horse about to go out and one for...

    The HSUS is not the batch of nutjobs some make them out to be.

    If it wasn't for work of the HSUS, the American public wouldn't have the awareness it does today of the huge problem of...

    IMHO Dreamweaver is the only product I'll use for web site design. The down side is that because it's so powerful & feature-rich there is learning curve. Why not buy some video tutorials or sign...

    Please google "horse slaughter" and find out why it's far worse than the fate of cows or pigs. Every step of the way it's brutal. And as a horse owner, I can't help but see how unnecessary and...

    Why can't you haul her loose? Who cares if she turns around in transit or slips under the chest bar, since it sounds like she's being hauled alone. I usually haul all my horses loose.

    Do you lease the stalls from the BO or the trainer? If you lease them from BO, then BO should've worked it out with you before moving you. Take it up with her.

    However, if you're subletting...

    I don't see the purpose of such a gizmo? If it releases too easily, wouldn't it potentially teach a horse he could pull back if he wanted to leave?

    It scares the crap out of me to know how easy it is to steal a horse, get cash for him at a broker, and have the "evidence" vanish in a matter of days -- with no paper trail. Used cars get better...

    I had always soaked them. Then I had a horse choke on *soaked* ones: pretty well wetted down and allowed to set for a bit. I called the manufacturer (southern states). Their attitude was that I...

    My question would be why buy a slant at all? There are non-slant versions that would move 3 or 4 horses. I guess I am just biased against them because I feel like too many of them are...

    If it's the one across from Wyn Lea, I do believe it's slated to be turned into a subdivision. Presumably they're razing the house & barn in the process.
