So, sorry that this is long but I do not know what to do. I bought an ottb in January and she is a great horse, beautiful and a total pocket pony.
However, now that I need to move her to her new home I have found that she has one vice. Of course the old owner offered to deliver her to me and stupid me said yes. I assumed she trailered well going back and forth to the track all the time. Now I need you to believe me on this, every single trick in the book you can think of, I have tried. I have worked with several trainers.
Different trailers, loading a buddy, grain, nagging, lunging, leaving in the field overnight with feed in it, and many many more. It has been a week now and I have spent at least 6 hours every day trying to load her to no avail. I have never seen a horse not give in after several hours and finally load. She will not even put a foot in. She throws her head up, rears and has even fallen over a few times. It scared me when she fell because she does have an old track injury on her rear leg that I didn't want her to agravate so I called it a day.
After seeing how her veins were bulging, how sweaty she got and how obviously upset she gets every time we try, it got me thinking. Is it really worth forcing her on a trailer if she would rather kill herself than load? I understand that I'm the boss and she needs to do things that she doesn't like to do, but with my showing and fox hunting aspirations, I wonder if this is just not the horse for me. I dont want to make her miserable every time we go somewhere. I have the vet coming out to trank her just to get her to her home, but this is not a permanent fix.
What would you do in this situation? Should I find her a home where her owner will only ride at home and be happy not going anywhere? Or do you think with steady work she will forget about the horrifying experience she must have had that is causing her to not want to trailer?
I have just never seen a horse that is this terrified to load and gets so dangerous to be around. Tags: None. If you've spent 6 hours every day for a week straight trying to load to load her then that is a HUGE part of your problem. Back off and find someone who is an actual professional at loading to work with her for short intervals every day in a nice open trailer. Comment Post Cancel. Okay that is a good point thank you. Our lease ran out on the property we have now so we need to get her out asap so maybe we are over pushing her. Posting Trot. This is a tough one, particularly since you like the horse otherwise.
In general, it is more than just a convenience to have a horse that will load, because even for those owners who may not show or trailer all the time, there are times when the horse absolutely needs to be trailered somewhere.

Like to the vet, or to a new home. You say that you've worked with trainers; what did the trainers do, exactly? How different were their methods? Have you looked at John Lyons' book, Lyons on Horses? He has a whole chapter on trailer loading. Basically he treats loading a horse on a trailer as an extension of proper ground-work. I don't know if this would be useful in your situation, but it might be worth checking out.
Good luck. Chestnut Run. Very few OTTBs have trailer loading problems, but may not be used to a regular 2 horse type trailer. They often ship on horse vans which are pretty open and airy. Could you try a stock trailer, or something with a box stall? And I second what another poster said. If you are spending 6 hours a day for several days, you aren't doing it right and really need someone professional to help you or to ship for you. Have you taliked to the old owner and asked if they had issues? What kind of rig did they have? What do you have?
What kind of trailer was she delivered in? Borrow a stock trailer. I've never had a horse not load willingly in one. Also look at your trailer. You may have issues. I agree,need an open stock or slant load,high ceilings. Also need to work on going forward,I like to do it long lining. Work away from the trailer to start. This combines well with clicker training. I have a pony who is sometimes a bit reluctant. All I have to do is hold the lead in the left,driving whip in the right and she hops in on her own. Have you tried both step ups and ramps?
Some horses prefer one over the other, perhaps she has an extreme case of this. I have a horse that Absolutely. When I got him. It took dorm, ace, and backing him into the trailer to get him home. It was ridiculous. I taught him to load by clicker training. Then we started with clicking and treating for small tasks, then larger tasks. After some time doing this I started bringing him up to the trailer, stopping him before he decided to stop, and clicking and treating. Then walking away. I repeated the process getting a little closer each time until we were stopping at the bottom of the ramp.
Then the real work began. I opened up the trailer as much as possible so it was light and airy. Then I stepped in and stood, putting light pressure on the lead. Any small yield to pressure got a click and treat, with training sessions lasting no more than 15 minutes before a break.
It took a long time but eventually we got it and he's been consistently much better since. However this took TIME. There will be people that say they can get any horse loaded in under an hour but I call bullsh! This horse had a complete meltdown over any little thing and I guarantee any "tried an true method" to get him to load would've ended with a vet bill or a trip to the hospital.
I know you mentioned you don't have much time to get the horse out so if the clicker method isn't feasible I would recommend calling the vet out and drugging the horse to get her on the trailer. I agree with trying a different trailer. A lot of horses are sensitive to ramp-load trailers. Try loading the horse into an airy stock trailer.
Another suggestion, have someone else try. Hand the horse off to someone else, and see what happens. Also, try working on lots of in-hand and longing respect. Horse has to learn that you're not joking around. Training to load on the trailer is an extension of proper ground work.
That includes ones who have never taken a trailer ride. Proper ground work. Teaching giving to pressure, cluck or kiss means move your darn feet immediately, pressure on the nose means get off it and woah means plant your feet. Once you engage their mind and make them focus on you and listen to you, and you're not physically dragging them or trying to physically restrain or hold them back, they will do anything for you. But your horse must respect you on the ground, give to pressure and know cluck and woah.
Been in your shoes many many times. I had a large pony we had to run the lunge line through the front window and around the rear legs to the front of halter and use another vehicle to pull her into trailer.
