a friend wants to pull a 3000 lb 3 horse slant bumper pull with her old half ton pickup, not sure what model, but 8 cyl gasser. She keeps saying the truck can pull the trailer and 2 horses, one in front and one in back stall fine. I think it's not enough truck to handle the wind or a horse moving the trailer around especially down hills. I'm not comfortable with this arrangement and want to use my dodge diesel 3/4 ton pickup and my gooseneck trailer. What facts do I need to convince her that truck is not enough? thanks.

Let her try it with her truck then hook the trailer to yours. Sureley she can tell the difference. I am amazed at people that don't use enough truck. By the time they find out it is too late. A lot of people worry about pulling trailers when they should worry about stopping them.
