"How is your horse doing with the trailer?  I have a horse who's first trailer experience was very similar, except he was being driven down the road, got turned around and kicked the small side-door open and came out backwards as it was…"

"I would add that when getting a reluctant horse onto a trailer, one way to let the horse know it's safe is to approach and retreat frequently, with a little more approach each time. As soon as the horse puts one hoof on the ramp, or on the…"

"I just read what you said about the fact that he does lead well.  That is great.  The rearing, tossing his head, coming too close to you, is all him saying to you, "make me".  Make sure that your lounge line is not too long…"

"Because he is afraid of the trailer - now what you must do is get him used to it. Take him out of his stall and walk him around and let him eat, slowly working your way toward the trailer. Do not look at the trailer, do not look at him - act like…"

"Hi, Rachel ... check out this video which may help you understand why your pony is behaving the way he is on the lunge line.  After you watch the video, let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy your journey. Anne"

"That does sound like a very traumatic experience.  He was probably very upset even with a group of people trying to load him.  The physical issues afterwards would have really cemented in his brain that trailers are terrifying.   You…"

Trailer Troubles

My horse will not walk onto a trailer. earlier this year we had a very traumatic experience where there was a group of us attempting to get him in a trailer, he walked onto the trailer and we closed the door and he started to freak out and rear, we opened the door to find his legs over the chest bar and his foot stuck in the hay net, we ran into the smaller person door at the front and cut the hay net so his let was free, as we opened the back door where he walked into the trailer he flipped…See More

"And the rearing thing: naturally you want to avoid that scenario. Does he lead well to start with? If he's not leading nicely under all circumstances, barging into you, or lifting his feet even  a little in a rear, then you should start…"

"Tapping the hip might be alright for an experienced person, but if you are close enough to tap the hip, and the horse gets a little excited or annoyed (especially being new to lunging), you could be close enough to catch a horse kicking out if he…"

Hank replied to Rachel Kent's discussion horse acting out on lunge line HELP!
"It sounds like he's challenging your authority. With young horses teaching them to lunge when you don't have an assistant to help is all about timing. Pretend there is a triangle that goes from your horse's head to your hand that your…"

Jackie Cochran replied to Rachel Kent's discussion horse acting out on lunge line HELP!
"I'll try to help though it has been a LONG time since I lunged a horse.  Horses do not lunge well automatically, like everything else it has to be trained step by step.  Proper equipment also helps, lunging cavessons with the hinged…"
