I have had my yearling filly off and on the trailer several times since she was a weanling. I am getting brave enough to actually take her for a ride. My question is...should I tie her or let her stand freely. The trailer is a stock combo and can be divided into 2 8x7 box 'stalls'. I don't know if I should single tie her or cross-tie...or NO tie at all. I plan on bringing along another horse in the other box stall for moral support. Any advice would be great!

Hi Shelley :-)

I would allow your yearling to be free in the trailer. Because there is so much space she might feel more comfortable being able to turn around etc. If she were tied she might fight the restraints because she has all that space. We ship our yearlings free in a stock trailer. I think it helps them gain confidence. Good Luck :-)

Hi, my first question would be does your filly tie already outside the trailer? If she's tying to a foal pole or rail, then she will tie in the trailer. Also, teaching her tie before you trailer her is really the safest way to go. Once she ties, tying in the trailer is safer than givin them room to wonder around and get hurt or stuck somehow. Babies tend to get themselves stuck in places an adult wouldn't. Have fun!
