I first started getting dusty used to a rope, then getting to walking beside me while dragging the rope on both sides of him. Also, backing him up and getting used to the rope dragging towards him. Then, I'd attach random things to the rope. Do all the same things. I got to the point where I was able to drag a full size tarp by him. Have yet to try it from a saddle, but now that I think of it I should probably work on that:P

If you are considering dragging a deer out, some horses get real snorty around a freshly killed carcass. If your horse will tolerate it, it is better to gut the deer and throw it across the saddle so it can be secured. Otherwise the meat will be so beaten up and torn you may as well give it to the dogs.

Yes a horse of a neighbors will literally go buckwild is he smells/sees a carcass resulting in accidents 70% of the time. My mare I plan on doing this with is just fine with them. They hang in the front of the barn to bleed out quite often lol. I planned on either throwing it over as you mentioned. Or wrapping it in a tarp and dragging after being gutted. Only concern is bloodshed on all her white... Which would kill my show career lol
