EEE!! I'm so excited!! Tonight ( 6/9/12) My 5 year old mare Andie loaded into the trailer for the first time! My mom and I have been working with her twice a week every week for about 3 weeks. She loaded in perfectly and stood in the trailer for about 5 minutes- calm as can be :)- before I backed her out for the night.Right now,we leave the doors open so she doesn't feel trapped or feel the need to freak out.
My mom and I were wondering though, when do we know she's ready to have to doors shut with her in the trailer? She gets a little nervous sometimes still and will back out, but after I take her for a circle,she gets almost right back in and will stand good until I ask her to back out.--
Any tips or suggestions are welcomed! :)
