Re: [RC] unloading to fast!! - Katrina Mosshammer

LOL, that's funny you say that because that's exactly what my old guy did last week. HE and my mare had stayed at mom's while we were gone labor day w/end and when I went to go home I had them both tied to trailer. I unclipped his halter from lead and let go of his halter while I unclipped the mare and he took it upon himself to load up alone. By the time I turned around with her he was already in. Mom teased that one of these days I'm going to have to teach that horse to load in a trailer. Winking smile emoticon

In a perfect world, with the perfect horse, you can stand outside and point into the trailer and your horse will load.  Believe me, we tried and tried this, even with a pro trainer when we had our straightload.  It wasn't happnin!  We finally sold it and bought a slant.  My mare will pretty much load herself now and so will my hubby's horse, but no matter what, you still have to get in there and snap the trailer ties.  I'm not rolling down the road with "loose" horses in the trailer.  I know people do it, but I worry enough about them when they're secure!  I'm such a mom, what can I say.  My horse does better when I walk in with her anyway.  I think I'll stick to that.  I have never had an issue with her flyin' out of there though either, thank goodness.
