I follow Clinton Anderson's methods.....I have never had a problem with my four and a boarder's horse loading.
Does your horse know how to send back and forth, what I do is stand where you are in the video and send them back and forth from one side of the trailer to the other, then ask them to go in the trailer. If they don't go in, then send them back/forth again....continue doing that until they get on the trailer. You want the horse to relate outside of the trailer with work and inside is rest.....do a search on Youtube for Clinton Anderson and watch some of his vids up there. Good luck!

The trick with the tap, tap, tap, method is you never hit harder than a tap, I have always been able to get a horse in with this method. The constant tapping gets to them eventually. I know how hard it is not to start wacking, but that would be too much pressure, and she might, as you say explode.
A ramp trailer might help too.


The worst horse I ever loaded was a friends, we were about 18 years old, We were at a show and everyone was gone, and we still couldn't get that SOB in the trailer, there was a cattle chute to load cattle into semi trucks, so basically it was a ramp about 12 feet long, one horse wide, going to about 7 feet high with 5 foot tall sides. We backed the horse on to the ramp, and I backed my trailer to the bottom of the ramp, the owner got behind the horse on the ramp and gave him a good swift kick in the butt. He walked down the ramp and right into the trailer.
One of the dumb things I have done with a horse, but it worked.

I feel your pain!

My first bad loader, no matter what work I did or any trainer did, she would walk up and run back. The only way we could ever get her loaded was when she walked up, someone would tie the rope snug to the inside of the trailer, she'd sit back, rear up, and jump right in every time.

One of the more wild ones, he would NOT load and I was just ready to get him gone. They came to get him and after three hours, each time we'd walk him up, he'd throw himself down on the ground. I gave them free rein to do whatever. They ran a long rope through the front of the trailer, tied it to the hitch of another truck and dragged his butt in the trailer. He went on and layed down half way through but sure enough once he was in there he jumped up, shook off and was fine... It was bizarre.

She's not that bad compared to what I've seen. Take a lariat rope, loop it over her hind end with the hondo in the middle of her back, when she steps her front feet in, suck that rope tight on her til she jumps in. If she won't respond to the butt rope, put it around her flanks. I've fixed so many horses using this method..

When she in 1/2 way in like in the video, just make sure you are leading her with a long rope or lungeline, loop it through a front window and pull her in from the outside, with a smack on the butt from the outside. Never seen that method not work, it's not a training method, it's a loading tacit.

Tried a lunge rope after a little ace and pulling her in. That was not so good she ended up almost going over backwards. No one was in the pin but didn't want her to hurt her self.

This may be a option

Drug her and haul her. Drama over, hands washed.

Had a sketchy horse load in my little but tall 2h straight after one wonky look. He baulked, sniffed and jumped on. Even stood still as a statue while we chatted for 10 mins. Put the truck in drive and he WIGGED. Never saw anything like it. Less than 20 feet down the driveway I had to stop, he was rocking the truck hard. Looked inside the trailer to find him straddling the divider. Flipped himself around twice, stood in the manger twice and finally destroyed the divider enough, we didn't have to worry about him killing himself getting hung up in the butt chains if we opened a door. They were obliterated.

He had hauled in a smaller trailer solo before. No idea what his deal was.

You've sold the horse. Dope it and be done with it.
