So my horse, like the sweetheart she is, walks nervously into the trailer for her first time the second we ask her to. The ride to her new barn is just fine (it was right down the road). We get there, open the back and ask her to back out. She won't. She keeps trying to turn around, but absolutley refuses to back out. It takes a half hour and some incredible pulling to get her out. I felt awful about forcing her like that, and I don't ever want to repeat the experience. She was simply terrifed to step out of the trailer into "nothing".
How do you teach a horse to back out of a trailer?
