I have an idea.. This is what i would you on my filly training her to stand in the trailer.. does he look nervuous before going into the trailer? With my filly i would let her stand right outside the trailer sniffing it until she felt comfortable enough to jump in.. once i got her in however she would back out as quickly as possible.. so i just started slow and as soon as she got her front feet in i would stop her.. and instead of waiting for her to back out, i would take the enititive and back her out before she thought about it. Sooner or later i would pat her as she would stay in the trailer longer.. then once i could get her to stand with just her 2 feet in there without trying to back out as fast as possible i would get the rest of her in there.. as soon and she got all 4 feet in.. right back out we went.. that way she knew that she could get out.. I would just keep repeating that until she realized she is going to be able to get out.. after a while i did the same thing that i did with just her to feet. petting her when she was calm and collected and then unloading her..

i hope this can help.. also maybe when he is in the trailer.. when he starts to pull back.. dont tie him up.. let him know that he isnt **stuck** in there and if he wants to he can get out..?
