Trailer Loading videos

Well, it is that time of year when we all want to be riding (if your reading this blog that is likely true!). It is also the time of year that I get emails about how to load horses into trailers. Thanks to the good folks at Tekonsha I have a complete series that you can watch for FREE right here on the internet.

All of the videos are at but I have also put one of the ten segments right here.

This training also works for teaching your horse to walk across things-tarps, streams, etc.

    Your video demonstrations are so helpful. — It encourages me that you, as petite as you are in comparison to the horse, can keep the horse out of your space for safety’s sake…and hopefully I could do the same some day. – So valuable. Thank you.

    Hi Stacy! My name is Josephine and I have a 5-year-old quarter mare. She is a really nice horse, but we have a problem. Often when I ask her to spin to the left, she’s just throwing herself into the spin and then starts to jumping or walking around. She is a really nice horse and she’s never angry or wants to hurt anyone. But when she spins to the left, it’s like she doesn’t listen to me and just throwing herself around. I know that she CAN spin good to the left too, because sometimes she spins pretty good to the left. But most of the time she doesn’t want to.

    She spins really good to the right, that’s no problem at all. She spins fast and smooth to the right. But she got some problem with spinning to the left… What can I do to make her spin willingly and good to the left?

    Thank you for reading and (hopefully) answer! 🙂

    P.S. If you want to, I can upload a clip on YouTube that shows our problem 🙂

      Yes, yes, yes on the YouTube clip! Then maybe I can return the video tip using one of my horses…could be fun!

        Here’s the video! These clips are from last year, that was when it was at its worst. She is doing much better now, but we still have some problems with spinning to the left. She is not jumping around so much anymore like on the video, but she still gets tense and a little jumpy.

        But like I said before, spinning to the right is no problem. This is when she is spinning to the right (bareback and bridleless tho):

        Thank you for answering, I really appreciate it! I have always admired you and you have inspired me a lot 🙂
