    I have yet to have a horse loose in this trailer that didn't end up traveling facing backwards. The 17.3 H mare I mentioned above was a nervous hauler. She would always want off any trailer she was put once on with the exception of mine. She would literally stand there quietly munching hay with the back doors open for air flow, as content as can be while we unloaded the horse next to her.

    That is so cool. I think my mare might need that. She doesn't travel well - she always loads and unloads fine, but she is stressed/nervous/anxious. Not relaxed - doesn't really eat.

    And I drive SLOW for her. Maybe something like this would help? I love the idea of the horse being as comfortable as possible.

    Saw the BR video on Youtube and it makes sense......
