AW: [RC] [Guest] Trailer ramps - Hilga Höfkens

Here in Ger. the step-ups are not very common. So I´ve hauled quite a number
of horses (and owners) with my step-up that had never seen such a thing
before (two horse straight with front ramp to unload).
Most of the time the owner went "OH, no horse could EVER jump up a step into
a trailer!" (my step is fairly low).
The horses had the sort of attitude saying "May I please get in while you
stand here fretting, that haynet in there is much more of interest than the
step to get there".
So there is not much "training for no ramp" involved as long as the horses
are not afraid of loading in general.
