Just go have a good time with your horse! That's all that matters.

So tempted to find another trainer right now. Am I being too hard on her? This is the second show he was supposed to go to that he stayed home.

Then I find out the mare has only been trailered once before herself... I didn't want to add fire to that situation.
I'm still mad.

I think he could win with your stance, HOWEVER if the trailer is not set up with a stud wall, I would not have hauled them either. Period.
The mare can get upset and kick, or he could try to get to her, or even pop up, major damage.
Most people who haul stallions have a certain set up for hauling them, the wall is solid from knee or top of leg up past head height,, if it is a slant the stallion goes in first, etc.

We always practiced before a show with the stallions to make sure that they would haul with another horse. Always put Vicks in the nostrils of the stallions when in the trailer. Can't smell the mare. Many people do this when hauling stallions.
