At a show a horse was tied to the left rear tie point on my trailer with a
reasonable length lead. The horse managed to get the lead under the stock
door of a steel stock trailer lined with ¾ inch plywood and by raising his
head lifted the door out of the hinges and dropped it on the ground. It
took four persons to lift the door back onto the trailer. If any person or
horse had been under that door we wouldnt have to bother lifting it until
the coroner arrived. I have also seen trailers almost pulled over by
panicked animals. Quick releases have to be released and nobody in their
right mind wants to be under a trailer trying to release the knot or snap.
A horse will get tangled in anything they can. And they will pull on it
until something breaks.
