backing out of the trailer
Ok here is the issue
My horse won't back out of the trailer, we had him do it once, but it took 5 people and two lead ropes, and it was very dangerous, the only way I can get him out of the trailer is to lead him out and the other day he almost fell so
When you try to back him out he steps to the side and actually pinned my cousin to the side of the trailer once, and hurt my uncles arm another time, he is very hard to take places and he rarely goes anywhere which means I don't get to go anywhere either,
He will back off the wash bay and step off backwards, but he wont step backwards out of the trailer, I think its because he can't see what he is stepping on to but I don't know how to get him to realize its ground
So what can I do? Has anyone had a horse with this issue? If so, what did you do to ger him/her out of the trailer?
Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.
