Training to trailer without a trailer
I have only trailered Citrus once since purchasing him a year ago. He is an easy going guy, but as with everything else, it is the more work I do ahead of time, the better.
What are some things I can do to practice trailering with out a trailer? I currently have him "load" onto a bridge with side rails and then back out of that..... I am thinking the ground commands of forward and backward are essential.... any ideas?
