[RC] trailer loading issue, banging hind shins - Tara M Sheppard

Hi all,
I have had this gelding for about 10 years now and he is starting to have
loading issues. He has always loaded real well up until recently.
It is not a training issue. He is concerned about banging his hind shins
on the back of the trailer.Which he seems to do more often and worse now
that he has developed anxiety towards this! 
Anyways, I have a step up trailer (no ramp) He is fine getting his fronts
in and then he has anxiety about the hind. He has slipped a couple of
times when loading because he tries to jump in with the hind.  Has anyone
else had a problem with this? What did u do about it? My trailer has the
rubber bumper on the back end.  I am thinking of having a ramp added.
Those of u who have had a ramp added- about how much am I looking at
spending for this? To make this endurance related, my horse absolutely
does not want to load at all anymore, so I can't make it to the rides!!Or
even train for that matter! I have even tried to move the truck and
trailer to a spot that would make it easier for loading him but he is now
totally hesitant to even want to load now.  Thanks all-
