I just got my mare to go on for a little bit. And if she started to back out I'd stop her and make her stand for a few seconds then backed her out.
After she was a little more comfortable, I tied her and stood there. Let her feel it out (always tied with a quick release to get her out quickly)
Then I would do the same, but talk to her and just step out of the trailer. Walk away a little farther while talking. Once she was more comfortable, I went and played around the back of the trailer
Then onto the buttbar, the door, fully closed, eating dinner on it.
Just take teensy steps
Hay is fine, mine just doesn't want it.
I live to ride and I ride to live
Horses are just angels without wings
