You have to realize we can ONLY give you advice on what you tell us.. So if you say he's drifting back to the trailer and wants to be there that means trailer sour..You have to tell us exactly what's going on with him to get a correct answer.. It's not something we can just guess at then you tell us we're wrong over and over again..No one is going to keep responding to your threads trying to help you when you shoot everyone down without thinking about what they are saying and taking it from all different aspects.
I'm going to try to put it so you understand it.. He is trailer sour, but it's not like that's a huge terrible case of it..It's easily fixed..
What Cisco thinks of the trailer : Water, my girl brushes me, treats, no more work, I get scratches, no work, treats, maybe there is a buddy at the trailer.. To him the trailer is a VERY happy place. He wants to be at the trailer and get treats and scratches, and not have to work.. Trailer = Happy
When he's away from the trailer and wanting to drift over to it it's because he wants those things that happen when he's at the trailer..He may just be doing it in quiet movements, just light drifting but when you correct him he'll go where you want him to.. That's still being trailer sour.. Just not an extreme case of it...Being a little trailer isn't horrible, it just needs to be acknowledged and corrected before it DOES turn into something more..Like the hopping, and head shaking, and pulling you to the trailer. These problems may start small and a little funny but when they are let go it gets worse...
We're in no way saying you have a bad horse, ALL horses will get a little trailer sour now and again, I'm not saying mine don't.. Hickory thinks there should be a parade and party when it's time to go to the trailer.. But as long as I correct him and I don't allow him to do those little things my little irritating problem doesn't turn into something that may get my horse and I into a situation that isn't wanted.
Does that make more sense? Just because we are telling you he's trailer sour doesn't mean he is the horse crow hopping to the trailer, or dragging you to the trailer..It isn't a one size fits all problem.. Maybe this is just the beginning of the problem, you just have to nip it in the bud..
