I agree with the above, but you have to consider total weight while towing (horse + trailer) and your vehicle's abilities. Trailer brakes are a good idea.

I've used a 2500 Suburban to pull a 3 horse trailer with two horses in it (not my rig, someone else's I was just helping out) and with the trailer brakes it worked just fine and stopped nearly as well as my gooseneck and 3/4 ton pickup do now, although I prefer the pickup for other reasons.

I don't know what it would be like if the trailer brakes weren't there though - that would probably make a big difference, I know it does with my rig.

Try not, do or do not. There is no try.
