I'm going to post this on backyard herds as well, but I figured I'd post here too. I'm really just looking for additional ideas. We don't have a problem horse, but rather a horse who has been on a trailer just two times during her five years on earth. My dad and I have worked with her a few times just to assess how she would be during training. She's actually done quite well and will put her front feet on the trailer (or at least she will let you put them on if she won't) She's very calm for the most part, just doesn't understand what we are asking of her. We have had luck with repetition with our other horse Stetson. I'm not looking to rush her onto the trailer or to give her a bad experience. I'm mostly looking for other methods that people use to train a horse to get on the trailer. I know she would definitely get on if I presented the lunge whip, but that's not what I want to accomplish. I want her to get on the trailer willingly and to have a good experience. However, the whip is definitely good back up if she should refuse to get on the trailer when we go away from home. All my other horses have been excellent with trailering and I would like her to be the same way. I am really looking forward to getting her out on the trails, but I can't do that until I teach her to get on the trailer. Any tips, past experiences, or videos/articles/pictures would be awesome. My dad has experience training horses to get on trailers, but I would like to work with the horse and trailer when he is not around. I know once she realizes that we want her on the trailer, she will do it for the praise. She LOVES when you tell her she's a good girl!
