Have a trainer who works with problem loaders help you, start phoning barns, someone will help you.

I dont have that kind of money to call a trainer i was hoping for some natural horsemanship i can do to load her

Any advice would be great

If you wanted to train her to load why would you wait until 2 days before you need her moved? It might be too late at this point, training requires patience and time, not forced deadlines.

What are you loading her in? What have you tried so far? What is her reaction?
Have you tried looking up videos on YouTube?

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

Two horse straight load or slant? Step up or ramp? Have you tried an open stock type trailer?
Again I ask - what is her reaction? That's the big one right there. My gelding shuts down with too much pressure, some horses blow up.

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.
