Start circling him and walkin out forward if the trailer will allow. And yes- walk him on the trailer then circle him around and walk right off.. its a simple fix.
Circle, circle and more circles. I TOTALLY DISAGREE! I'll circle my horse for a lot of reasons but I found that this is the wrong time to do so. Some things JUST DO NOT work for all. This is NOT a 'I saw this video and it worked for me", situation.
Each trailer, horse and owner is different. Finding the key is the objective for an easy and less stress for horse and loader.
READ the other threads. Lot's of good ideas. It will take some time to recognize what your horse is telling you. Recognize the problem and adjust.
I boost about my 30 second load and no stress. BUT... I had to read, watch and learn from a lot of others. THEN I threw it all out and consulted with myself and my horses. My horses gave me the answers that no one else had a clue about.
