Here's my WAG: it's a skid guard, to stop you from destroying your suspension if you are backing up a hill or driving over an obstruction.

Oh, that somebody looped a dog leash over (not sure about the dog leash, though. )

Looks like some sort of skid device. In case you get a flat the trailer slides on that instead of the bolts digging into the pavement. It looks bent and or loose with the bunge holding it up.

Back in the 60's and 70's safety skids were quite popular. Seide was the best known one. I believe yours is one of the other brands.
Purpose was to hit the pavement before a flat was totally down on the rim..
When you see the shower of sparks coming from under the trailer it is a good indication you have a flat.

What RickDavis stated. And exclusively on single axle trailers for obvious reasons.
