He will back out, but only if it's just his front legs in the trailer. Any back legs, he just wont. I have no issue with turning him around, except our trailer is a straight load. It is warmblood sized, but it's not big enough for him not to squish when turning. I NEED him to back out, he already has chiropractic issues with his ribs and he has popped a rib out turning around because he has to squish so much. PLEASE! Help me! I have tried everything! We are even considering a ramp but that is an expensive option.
(I have also spent hours backing him over random stuff, but he will not even back out of a shelter that in 2-3 inches higher than the ground. I have gotten him to back off a small cement pad though.)
PS: How much would a ramp cost for a straight load?
