A few overall "issues" I see here.
Hello i have a rescue horse who is scared to get into the trailer she was abused and starved she was rescued in September but she wont get into the Trailer any ideas please i have to get her moved by Saturday.
This is like saying I have a 4-yr-old mustang who's never seen a human before, but I have to ride him in a reining competition in 2 days.
You are setting yourself and the horse up for failure when you don't prepare.
Is this your first horse? Have you owned horses before? You didn't say so that's why I am asking. How experienced are you with horses?
I dont have that kind of money to call a trainer i was hoping for some natural horsemanship i can do to load her
So you can't afford $100 for a trainer to come help you for the day?
Then what are you going to do when you force her to load and she gashes her leg open in the struggle, and now you have to keep her overnight at the vet and now have months of banadging ahead of you, not to mention about a $1,000 in vet bills, anti-biotics, and bandaging materials?
There is nothing natural
about forcing a horse to get into a tin can of a trailer, because you don't have the time to train her.
Im loading her in a two horse trailer and the rescue said she loads fine but it turned out when i went to load her she was terrified, and i tried loading her with her grain its been helping but i was wondering if there was something else i can also try? I been trying with grain for about a week now
If I bribed you with chocolate chip cookies, would you follow a complete stranger into......
Why not? They are chocolate chip cookies
So why on earth do you think you could bribe a horse with some grain to get into one of these death traps?
It still baffles me why some people think they can "train" a horse to load with grain.
its a straight load all she has to do is step up she will usually just walk away but if you bring a rope or lunge line and try to get her in she freaks out and bolts.
That's a pretty darn big task to ask of her. (Per my cave description above.) It's not that simple.
For an untrained 2-yr-old horse, all they have to do
is let me strap a saddle on their back. And all they have to do
is turn when I tell them and go when I tell them.
Plus YOU are dealing with an ABUSED horse. She is probably going to have some mental and emotional issues. Maybe she was beat with a rope or beat with a lunge line.
Again, do you see the predicament you've placed yourself in?
Okay, scolding aside (hopefully you've learned a lesson here) there are ways to "force" a horse to load. However, you need to know that it might set you back in her training.
I highly recommend Clinton Anderson's trailer loading DVD. It is worth every penny. He goes through the proper steps of training a horse to load. But he does also have a couple of "emergency" strategies if you need to load your horse and haven't fully completed the training process. They're not recommended unless you have absolutely no choice, because of course they are going to set you back in training a little bit. The emergency strategies will allow you to load a horse once; it will not
teach them to load for a lifetime.
If it is at all possible for you to borrow or rent a stock trailer (rather than a 2-horse straight) it is going to make the process a lot easier. Straight loads are often the hardest to get a horse to load into because it is so small and claustraphobic to them.
The main thing to remember: PRESSURE and RELEASE.
Clinton uses a rope as a "butt rope" for one of his emergency strategies. To ask the horse to go forward, pull on the rope to put pressure on her butt and also the leadrope on her head. The very instant she walks forward, you need to immediately remove the lead rope pressure and remove the butt rope pressure. If she stops, apply pressure again. Release immeidately when she moves forward.
It may be easier to have a couple people help you, especially.
I've also had success in an emergency situation before by using corral panels (and a few helpers). One person is coaxing the horse, while the others slowly creep the panels closer to "encourage" the horse to go onto the trailer.
Again, these methods should only be used if you have absolutely no other way to get a horse loaded and they must be loaded. Because it certainly isn't going to make a good impression in the horse's mind.
