If you’re dealing with any of these scenarios, you’re not alone! Trailer-loading troubles are some of the most common issues all equestrians experience at one point or another with their horses.
In 2018, Clinton released a video series that explains how he builds a horse’s confidence about getting on the trailer and being comfortable with the experience. To make the series the most educational for horsemen, Clinton worked with three horses with longstanding fear or dislike of the trailer. The equine students include: Easter, a 13-year-old palomino, Redbird, an off-the-track Thoroughbred, and Dolce, a 3-year-old blue roan Quarter Horse.
The detailed how-to series is split up into two parts. In part one, Clinton works with Easter, explaining how he builds a horse’s confidence about getting on the trailer and craving to be there. In part two, he works with Redbird and Dolce. In Red Bird’s training session, Clinton explains how to teach a horse to load confidently on and off a trailer without a ramp. Working with Dolce, Clinton demonstrates how to quickly load a horse that refuses to go in the trailer in an emergency situation.
