I can't have that many people help me load her everytime and I can't help but think that if there was an emergency, I wouldn't be able to load her.
The next problem is standing on the trailer. Once she is on, she starts bucking and rearing. When I got her off the trailer at the lesson place, she was covered in sweat and shaking, even though all of the windows were open. She was terrified to be on the trailer. At every stop sign, we could feel her kicking the trailer. I had to put a "ree-ree bonnet" on her (as the people at the tack store called it). It's a protective helemt so she doesn't hurt herself when she rears. Funny thing is- she was perfectly fine when we were riding around at the new place, just afraid of the trailer.
I don't know what to do about these problems. I know practice makes perfect, but I need a way to get her on the trailer that doesn't involve stressing her out. I've thought about leaving her in the field or the outdoor ring with the trailer, but the BO isn't too happy about that idea. I'd put another horse on with her to keep her company, but she has never met my other horse before and I don't want her kicking him. He field buddy isn't mine and I have never seen his owner before, so I couldn't use him. I can understand not wanting to get on the trailer because lots of horses don't like it, but it scares me when she freaks out inside the trailer.
