1. A method for braking a traction vehicle-trailer combination with a traction vehicle and at least one trailer, in which a traction controller is provided for a brake system of the traction vehicle, and for a brake system of the at least one trailer, no traction controller is provided or a traction controller is provided for axles which are present, but with a brake-slip-determining arrangement on fewer axles than a number of axles which are present, the method comprising:
controlling the brake system of the trailer by the brake system of the traction vehicle;
determining, during a braking process, whether there is a risk of the trailer swinging out with respect to the traction vehicle, or whether such swinging out is imminent or is occurring;
reducing the braking force of the trailer or the braking of the trailer if it has been determined in the controlling that there is a risk of the trailer swinging out, or such swinging out is imminent or is occurring; and
detecting a risk of the trailer swinging out, or imminent or occurring swinging out of the trailer, with respect to the traction vehicle, by a response of the traction controller of the traction vehicle.
