Ford Escape Vs. Horse Trailer? lol?

Alright... I have a Ford Escape and I was wanting to know if it could pull a horse trailer (with a horse in it of course). I am planning on buying a horse soon and wanted to know if it would be alright to do this, instead of getting a manual truck and all that mess. (Because i can only drive automatic) x.x lol
Update: UPDATE : I know trucks are automatic too ._. but i want to AVOID the mess of renting a truck.
Update 2: Aha =] thank you all!
