Some short instructional documentaries on various topics related to trailering & hauling
I would like to extend my thanks & deep appreciation to Joanne Braithwaite of Pebble Beach Productions for her time, expertise & talent! Joanne has been working tirelessly on producing the videos you will see here, & the love of horses we both share comes through in the meticulous detail of her work.
The first installment is entitled "The Reluctant Loader". In this sequence I will show one method of dealing with a horse who just needs a bit of extra time to take those few steps on board.
"Traveler" is our subject for this installment. Traveler is an Appaloosa gelding who has had limited exposure to trailering, & is therefore still leery about stepping on board. I feel it is in the best insterests of horses like Traveler to be respectful of their limitations, & allow them the extra time needed to gain their trust. One of my most frequent utterances in situations like this is "I may have to load this horse again one day, so I want to make the next time easier!"
