Most likely because there is a reward in that trailer be it food or whatever... Tom will do the same thing if you place a bucket of corn into it, I cal it a bribe...
I agree with Rio and Kevin, while those tricks are cute, they are not really horsemanship IMO, any joe could read up and practice a bit and do that. That Spanish horse was phenomenal, a little hyperflexed which looked ridiculous, but overall exemplary.
And here is where I agree with Macabre as well, as with another video of a Spanish horse trained as a bull fighter that everyone was fawning over, a 2000lb bull is very good incentive to move so, staying alive is great incentive and can be the difference between the horses in the first video and their potential compared to the Spanish horse and the level of obedience and refinement he is at, he knows he has to move that way or he will be killed... Makes for great obedience training lol
