After having my horse for 2 months I have been slowly noticing some vices he has but they really aren't a big deal ( but previous owner was very untruthful). Anyway on Easter Sunday my husband went to load up our 2 horses and only came home with his. This horse that loaded so well when we bought him is now refusing to get in the trailer! We have tried being patient, putting another horse in first, tying the lead on to the side when he puts his front feet in the tapping his butt, then smacking his butt nothing works it only results in rope burns and him cutting up his front legs! I need some suggestions on things to try with him. My husband is so mad he wants to sell him but I then pointed out who wants to buy a horse that won't load! Honestly I would love to keep this horse he is great in most ways ( a few minor vices but nothing serious) I picked him out, I bought him but this loading thing is unreal. We bought them for riding in the mountains and that isn't going to happen at this rate. He used to be a show horse so he's been trailered lots.
