Trailering Dilemna...Almost Resolved
Thanks everyone for posting in my other thread, but I've gotten Tango over her fear-more stubbornness-of entering the trailer-now it's the actual fact of staying in there. (Thanks NittanyEquestrian for posting in the other one and giving me tips on how to deal with my dad and Tang IN the trailer.) But yeah, so, now Tango will walk no problem onto the trailer, stand while she's being tied, but when I step out of the trailer she gets really nervous and starts moving around and dancing and shuffling (trying to wheel around and see where I am). When we drive you can feel her banging around and jostling the entire vehicle. I don't know if we should just keep driving out and hope that she just calms down and gets used to it, or if I should do something else. She's got a haynet that she mostly ignores...what else can I do to calm her down in there? Besides leaving her inside for longer amounts of time each day.
