    You can retrain a horse to load (usually). Takes time but is doable.

    Technically, it sounds like he does load.....perhaps not on the particular day you would like, but keep trying, you will get there........ lol You should be able to retrain that without a huge problem.

    More often then not, trailer loading issues are brought on the by the human. That shouldn't be a deal breaker if you like the horse. That is something you can work on. Now... IF he lunges at you or kicks at you while trying to load, you might want to determine how much time you wish to invest to get there. If he just says "Meh, not really wanting to do this" then chances are, it is a quick fix.

    Okay so as per the seller this is what she said about his loading issue.

    "He isnt that bad too load but he does take some patience initially. He isn't scared, more like he doesn't feel like it. We have almost got it down to a science and with some grain he is generally not bad to load at all. I think he will be just fine with a little more trailer work. You should have no issues with trailering to shows. I would say 10 min tops to load him."

    Now that makes me feel loads better so let's hope that's true!

    All my horses have loading issues. (Not from me, though) so I've almost got my trailer loading techniques down. Haha.
