The trip is 106 miles long, moving from Oklahoma to Missouri. With me never having trailer trained a horse myself, I have watched and helped with it a couple times before. (A few times just watching.) It seems like a trick if you have a really jumpy horse. I'd use her mother to help me out, but her mother is due any day, and I doubt she'd want anything to do with April once this new foal comes.
I was hoping someone could give me a quick, yet easy-on-horse way to train April to walk into a trailer. I'm not sure what type of trailer I'll be using, but if we were to use a metal trailer, would hay be fine as a cushion?
Any simple advice would be great. I'll have Roger (who has experience) helping me, but I wouldn't mind having input of my own, too.
