My horse went through an insecure period in his life a few years ago, screaming his face off like a little girl if I left him alone at a show even though he was tied to the trailer with other horses. Was so embarrassing so I started tying him on the other side of the trailer where he couldn't see me or other horses, then I left him there at the showbarn in a stall by himself, he snapped of it, phew! Go figure, his registered name is RDR "Independence" Day because he ran away from his mom when he was only a few days old. Momma was being led from the corral to the barn, he didn't follow, he made a break for it and headed down the driveway & ran down the road! No I didn't own him at this time but I was at the breeding farm working their stud when this all happened. Was hilarious watching the owner drag back this colt by his & him kicking & screaming like a spoiled toddler! Then about a week later, he is out in the pasture with his mom & several other mares & foals and he jumps the fairly high fence into the neighbors pasture to hang out with other horses, goofball.
Your mare sounds insecure and doesn't want you to leave her as she associates the trailer with going bye bye, as long she doesn't throw a fit, it is quite endearing I think!
