Load her up with at least 6 CCs given orally while the horse is calm, walk away and wait 45 minutes for it to take effect. If you excite the horse prior to that she will blow right through it. If you use anything stronger, after the horse is in the trailer, wait till it wears off some or the horse has a good chance of falling down while on the road. Get her drugged, have a chute made to the back of the trailer, find some cattle folks to help and treat her like a bull. Drive her from behind (buggy whips, using the handle end or a stock sorting stick) and let her know in no uncertain terms the only place for relief is in the trailer. Turn the lights on in the trailer so its not a dark hole. Make sure your chute is set up so you can get the door shut as soon as she is in. Get her moving towards the trailer as fast as you can so she goes clear in when she goes. Less apt to rear at the door this way. It ain't pretty and who ever has to train her later to trailer load will have their work cut out for them, but this works. Have loaded multiple stray feral horses and unbroke race horses amped up on 20 lbs a day Omalene 300 this way. The worst part is you have already trained the horse to defeat you at loading, so completely change your approach. Once you get her in the trailer, get moving as soon as you can. Most all horses will settle down once they are moving. Don't go in the trailer and try and tie her, just leave her loose and go. At the destination, back up to a pen, open the door and get out of the way! She may rush out, she may just stand there. Either way, you don't want to get in her way. Good luck to you!
    if you have read my posts you will see I have now Rompun I do have more ace also but will use Rompun first we need her Drugged so she does not get hurt. We tried to Rough house her in yesterday and she about went up and over a panel. I want her loaded NOT hurt


    I would love to try Allot of many suggestions and If I had the means and materials I would.. I do appreciate all suggestions and Have Used some of this to learn and help.

    Thank you

    do you suggest I let her end up hurting some one or her self ? She has been bullyed/beat so much before I got her that Trailering is a terrible thing she not so much afraid of the trailer as what is going to happen behind her when she is going in

    All positive thoughts for you today Critter, nothing so sure than if you had all of us there with you she would be loaded by now, sheer weight of numbers would of won.

    Also nothing surer than it is far easier to load someone else's horse over the internet, lots of great ideas been given here, but as I know only to well, not every idea works with every horse

    Can you borrow a more open stock trailer to get her loading? Mine didn't care for the little two horse but will much more readily go in the stock as it isn't as closed in.

    No I can't. The only only one close is in mudd behind a huge snow pile.

    It is a bigger 2 horse. But small opening

    Just had another crazy loader this morning. It was about to get bad and a man threw his jacket over his head and blindfolded him. That horse literally trotted right in the trailer.
