    Thanks, PaintHorseMares!

    I know so many people who turn something as simple as loading can be into a major project, literally weeks of planning in the making, and after the second refusal to step nicely on completely lose patience and start trying to physically drag the horse on (I've seen so many try to "reel" the horse on by the lead rope, like fighting a sailfish onto a boat! ).

    If you think of it as a big deal, guaranteed the horse will make it one.

    That is the key! It's NO different than anything else. Some horses do get ornery at times (duh!), and if you were leading your horse to the barn, you wouldn't try and just 'drag' your horse along with you. It's no different when loading...if I'm loading a horse that has loaded before (past the trailer 'monster' stage) and it is just being difficult, a quick flick of the lead or a smack on the butt will get them moving just like any other time.
