Having a horse go in circle after circle is the worst thing you can do when they are in this frame of mind, it will just escalate the problem. You can do half circles (with your back to a fence) so that she has to constantly disengage her HQ's, thus helping kick in the 'thinking side' of her brain. Backing, going sideways, transitions every few strides are also great ways to get a horse thinking again.
    I agree totally with this. I would also stop all supplements accept the vit/min supplement. I doubt it will do anyhting but it probably isn't necessary either.

    Oh, no, no I LET her of course. :) But on speed I want (meaning controlled walk). I don't want her to run into the trailer as she may get hurt.

    Oh ok, gotcha! I want my horse and horses I work with to eventually trot into the trailer, but ONLY when they are calm! Lol. They can be exhuberant, I want them to be that, but in a controlled fashion where I can easily direct their energy.

    Hi there
    Sounds like a great horse with alot of energy. This may sound stupid but mine used to do that when he was younger. One day, we were in the outdoor shelter with him and something happened that made him either excited or angry. He reared and hit his head hard on the roof! He's never done it since. Just thought I would share this.

    Ha-ha-ha! My qh NEVER trots into the trailer. She gets little more excited when we are leaving from park or clinic (mostly because we are done and she'll be back to her hay in trailer), but never at home. With paint she gets so overexcited that I don't think I ever want to let her to trot there. May be when she'll be 20 years old..... Lol!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I know there is a believe that if they rear and hit the head they stop it. But I guess it depends on horse a lot. She reared for my old vet once (he tried to give her intranasal shot and I was stupid enough not to ask for sedation first) and hit the rail in shed. He said same thing: it'll teach her, but... It was completely opposite. Not only she started it even worse for while she also didn't let that vet to come close to her at all. I ended up using another vet (for already 2 years in row).
