It was the lariat loop on the butt that did it and LOTS of drugs but the drugs more irritated her. And bre alone BM standing guard to close the door

Well, God Bless America!!!!!
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.

I would get in the trailer if I had Bre telling me to too.
She looks though.

I didn't read the whole thing (and saw that she got in, Yay!) but I had a similar experience with my mare.

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!
