Have you tried drawing a diagram?

I don't know if you're familiar with narrowboats and canals, but the towpath where the horse walks is parallel to the canal and a short distance to the side.
The horse pulls the boat along and the boat has to make a slight steering correction away from the side the horse is pulling from.
the angle of the rope to the direction of travel would usually be less than the 40 degrees given by the question, i.e. the horse is a long distance in front of the boat. (not that this will stop us from doing the question)
The rope is virtually horizontal so the force produced at both ends is equal

This is about applying Newton’s 3rd law

The force exerted by A on B, say FAB is equal and opposite to the force exerted by B on A, say FBA.

FAB = -FBA
