    I would like others to share. I have only my 2 load. NONE of my horses had ever been in a trailer before so I started at step !... I learned from my horses.

    The BACKING OUT was the problem. Solve the problem.

    Great News!!! Breeze is moved safe and sound!

    This morning I finally convinced my boss to let her ride loose in the trailer, after tying her to the trailer tie, and her breaking the halter (we had a spare one) we called for some help, the first person we called was busy and could not come, but also confirmed it with my boss that the safest way would be to let her go loose.

    After that, we got the barn owner of the place she was at to help, but that also failed... so we asked him if he could call my 'friend' (the person who always helps me with Breeze if I run into trouble) and she was there within 10 minutes.

    I gave her the lead rope, let her do her thing... she lunged Breeze, brought her to the trailer, if she backed up or veered, she would lunge her again, after doing that a few times, I went behind her (but not directly behind) and smacked her every time she backed up... eventually, within 20 minutes, she was in and calmed down fairly quickly.

    I was very suprised when we got to her new place because when we unloaded her she was very calm and listened very well. She did not really care about the other horses, even when I put her in her own pen... she ignored the gelding for about 5-10 minutes then went up (it is a mare thing, she is the only mare there) and after she calmed down, we put her in the barn for the very first time, and she was fairly good, then I lunged her in the round pen and left it at that...

    She is very calm and not squelling or kicking at the others very much. I am very happy with this.

    Thanks! Breeze has settled in nicely, we actually had her playing with 3 of the horses in the big arena today, and by herself in the arena today and she was great, by herself she had a great time, running, bucking, doing a few sliding stops and quick turns... then when we put the 3 others in with her they were all just following her around... here is a picture!
