When I purchased my horse, he had a long (several days trailer ride having not been in a trailer much was so nervous and distraught he had to be sedated to take the edge off his behaviour so as not to injure himself, damage the trailer or upset the others he was travelling with. Long story short when he stepped off the trailer he was a bag of nerves and immediately took to chewing the fences- badly! I tried no- chew spray/ hot peeper mash painted on, suppliments and salt etc the only thing that seemed to deter the habit was irish spring soap rubbed on the board edges until he settled in. He will still grab a board if he gets nervous which isn't often at all now.
