She may be British, but I'm an American and have never heard the term Sacking Out before. O.o Ever.

So, it's just desensatizing?

Yes, it is a method for desensitization. The term came from using a sack (burlap I think) to rub all over the horse.

I start with one thing, like a feed sack (not the paper ones), and transition through all kinds of things. One of my favorites is a yellow slicker. It's amazing how many horses I've come across that were scared of them, and in our trail classes, we often have to pick one up and carry it. :)

You are not allowed to use the word desensitizing either as its REALLY hard to spell

How is lovely Shropshire? I lived there once and was so sad to leave. My son was born there.
