Title: RE: Re: Loading (trailers, not carbs <grin>)

And just a reminder - Check Your Driving!  I had truck trouble one time that necessitated gunning the engine and braking too hard to get the truck and trailer the last five miles into ridecamp.  Horsies just about refused to get on the trailer to go home.  Took a couple of trips of nice quite driving correctly to convince them it was a temporary scare!

Very good point.  I've also learned to listen to my horse.  Because I know
that he isn't a problem to load, if he becomes difficult, I start
questioning the safety of the trailer.  A little while ago, my neighbour's
horses (all of whom compete and trailer regularly) started to object when
asked to load.  They were cajoled on, and she even had a "horse whisperer"
out to see them.  Two weeks later, one of them slipped on the rubber matting
in the box (which was loose) and came down, cutting himself.

So much time spent on convincing horses to load....and nobody questioned the

Makes you think, doesn't it?
