So as you know me and my friend are avid trail riders, our average ride is 5 hours. It has been the first summer hauling our newer trail mounts, my new appy mare is amazing, only stomps her front left foot if you make her wait too long ;) but a complete angel to haul
My friends 7 yr old Percheron/TB, cannot stand in the trailer.
She loads perfect in straights or slants, and stands fine, when the trailer is not moving.
However this horse constantly falls!! When I stop or turn or what ever, and I don't drive crazy Fable is in there too and she stands great the whole time.
This horse will seriously fall down like 8 times to the mountain.
We have tried her in a straight load = horrible
Three horse slant, first position next to wall = horrible
Three horse slant, middle position = horrible
Three horse slant, last position by doors = horrible
She is not a crazy horse, she is completely calm in trailer.
Please has anyone heard of this!!!
The horse always gets right back up unharmed but I really dread hauling her horse for her, its so stressful!
We have hauled the horse a good 10 times this summer with no improvement.
Any and all help is appreciated!! I have never had this issue before all my horses have been able to stand on their feet!
