Hello there! I'm in a bit of a predicament, and I really would appreciate any help that can be given.
So I have this horse, and I love her to bits. I love showing her, but the problem is she has such a hard time getting in the trailer. She's not scared of it, she's just so stubborn! She'll rear and turn away from it or just stand there and not budge. Mostly she'll just rear. And if you get her into the trailer, before you can even move to put up the back bar she'll back up so quickly. Same with trying to put the trailer tie on her halter.
I've tried to take the partition out so its more spacious but I still achieve the same results. We've tried grain/treat to coax her on, lunging before hand, putting another horse on first and other things but still she won't get on. I'm starting to think it's lack of respect she has for me, but I've been riding this horse for 5 years?
So please, anyone, I'd like to know a solid way to help her get on the trailer. Any input is appreciated, thank you!
