Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Great photo of your daughter. If I were a horse and she looked at me with that expression, I'd hop into a trailer with no questions asked.

Congrats and have a safe trip.
LOL I did not realize the expression on her face .. That is funny!!
I am so Proud of her.
I swear Grace was being that difficult cause she didn't want us to miss her when she was gone.

Long story short, she had a bad experience and was terrified of trailers. We tried for hours and she ended up flipping over backwards.

We ended up sedating her with Dormosedan (sp?) and it worked like a charm. I highly recommend it for horses who won't load but you HAVE to get somewhere, like I did.

We have since retrained her and she now loads like a pro!
she had 2 big doses of Rompun and some ace too. that didn't phase her! I think it just made her mad and yes she was calm when I gave it to her.
Aspen her new owner was wonderful in her understanding and she plans on working with her on trailering Grace will be right on her property so she'll be able to work with her. They are a great match.

I had a gelding that was like that--big mess, afraid of like, E V E R Y T H I N G, including the trailer. Fortunately I bought him from a friend and she bought him back. Too many problems I NEVER had had to deal with. Crying out loud, when I bought "Corporal", (1982-2009, RIP), as a 4yo at the auction where I outbid the Meat Market by $5, he was the last horse bid on, and everyone was gone, and I had NO lead. He led into my stock trailer with a piece of baling twine! 180 degree difference between him and "Beaner." He was also totally green when I first saddled him. Good attitude with all I trained him to do.
In case anyone is reading this, I have used Ace powder before. IF you do, you must keep the horse calm for one hour, or else it won't work. I had to Ace "Beaner" to worm him and to load him in the trailer. HE was the horse that threw me and broke my arm in 2004.
Happy ending for him. Her son took a shine to him and started big time trail riding with him. He was an unregistered gaited mix.

Sounds like she got a good home & the owner for sure knows the trouble you had w/the trailer. Hope she can get her over it. But at least it's not your headache anymore!
