When a horse goes in that far I'll just start tapping on it's hip, not with a flag or plastic attached. I want the tapping to be annoying so the horse will want to move away from it. It stops the moment it even rocks forward, wait a few seconds then start again on the same spot. The idea isn't to inflict pain. The horse may load and back right out and that's ok, but it will learn that the only way the tapping stays away is to step up and stay there.

We have done that for hours on end saddlebag



Talked to the vet he says there are stronger sedatives but it might make it physically impossible to load her

I believe someone already mentioned a few times that vets carry heavier stuff. Be done with all this messing around. You're risking the sale.

I totally agree with you I been in contact with my vet and he is afraid to use anything else that she might be too sedated to load and Travel

Rompun (Xylazine). I have used this and given it IV. I do not recall the dose.

Ace is useless if the horse gets excited at all.. the horse can over ride it. ALL tranq's are dangerous because the horse can still move like lightning when it looks half dead with sleep. I saw a half dead with sleep horse kick an Xray plate to kingdom come so fast I never saw her move.. she kicked and put her foot back down exactly where it had been. This was an X ray for a PPE.

Most horses that will not load in a horse trailer (slant or otherwise) will walk right into a stock trailer. Big open area.. doesn't feel like a trap.

Have you tried a blind fold? I have gotten horses to go lots of places by simply putting a sweatshirt over their eyes. Might try it when the horse is calmly part way in.. just blind fold and then try to lead the horse forward. Be careful doing this. While I never had a wreck and it always worked it always seemed it could lead to a wreck. The blind fold calmed the horse.

We have been trying to load her from Wednesday. No I don't have days or weeks. I'm almost to the point of throwing in the towel I've never ever had this much problem it's ridiculous.
