The action of the thoracic sling and the ligamentum nuchae are detailed.

The latter are tireless supporters of the horse's neck and head in its natural position at withers level or lower.

Allowed to stand in their natural position during transport, horses can rest a hindleg.

A conventional trailer bears many scars of horses, spread-eagled behind, trying to balance off their hindlegs.
