With all the trailer options available to day which are best straight or slant load? This has been through much debate and honestly depending on which side you are pulling for can come out on top. While straight load trailers provide the horse the ability to be able to evenly distribute weight on his front two feet or back two feet during speeding up or slowing down, slant load trailers let the horse take hard stopping on a greater portion of his body therefore minimizing the risk of injury. Most horses tend to load in a slant load better than in a straight load but loading in either comfortably can be taught. So when it comes down to it the best trailer design is mostly up to the buyer of the trailer. Whichever you like best you will more than likely purchase.
