See what I mean?
    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..

    The reason you've heard it so much is because that's what you need to do....But you know that don't you, since you've heard it about twenty times.....

    Really? You don't have to be rude and "yell" at people trying to help you, that's childish and ridiculous....and we ALL know I've given you a LOT more patience than I give most people...

    When he starts drifting over to the trailer just don't let him go over there, simple as that. Make him turn away from it and just keep walking him around. After your turn in the arena don't immediately take him to the trailer, take him for a walk around, get off of him and pet him away from the trailer, give me a treat away from the trailer.. Don't let the only "happy" things happen at the trailer.. You don't want him to anticipate when you're going to go to the trailer every time. You want him to listen to you at all times and look to you for direction.

    We don't normally take them back to the trailer right after we get out of the arena we ride around a little bit first, honestly we only go back to the trailer for water once or twice during the show. He only drifts during our run not outside the arena and its usually coming back from the last barrel wich makes that turn wide, we practice overturning at home and using my leg to move him over works sometimes but he sometimes totally overects and goes way away from it, is that good or bad?

    Are we going on a wild goose chase or what??

    See..you never said he does it "only" during your run..We're talking about a WHOLE new problem.. I'm not even going to get into what could be wrong with him doing it during your run.. If you want help with that please post a video. The way you over react to things and jump to conclusions, I'm not even going to TRY to answer that one.. Post a video, it sounds like a training issue or you need to work on that last barrel..

    I think it's an age thing..you are always very defensive to what we say..even though we are just trying to help..

    I'm not going to give advice on the new problem without seeing a video or picture..I may be spot on or completely wrong..

You stated you had a problem with your horse and we gave you advice to fix it, because he IS trailer sour. He doesn't see it as funny or as a magnet affect..I understand that you probably post a majority of your threads with a problem or question then when you don't hear what you want you get mad at all of us...We're not ganging up on you or trying to be mean to you..We're just telling the truth, you have to accept that you may get responses you don't like, but you just have to deal with it..You'll never be able to help your horse by making excuses for you both..

    And we're not saying things to be rude or pick on you..Just because a majority of us have the same opinion doesn't mean that we're targeting you or ganging up onyou..We are really just trying to help you and help you see and do things correctly.
    I would like this but my facebook would be confused. Its well stated that everyone just wants to help.
