Begging your horse to enter the trailer is frustrating at best. Forcing your horse into the trailer is dangerous. And, unfortunately, you can't just leave the little bugger there at the fairgrounds, so you're stuck. Who needs the aggravation?
The next time you're running late for a show and the kids are driving you nuts and you need to get your horse boxed up and you're running really late... wouldn't you love to have a pro horse trainer appear and show you what to do? 
Well, the bad news is, I'll be twenty states away that day. The good news is... you can bring my book! Trailer training is actually very easy - it's just a matter of knowing what steps to take, how long to do each, and what to emphasize. To that end, I've compiled a simple set of instructions, a guidebook to getting your horse loading smoothly using the proven methods of John Lyons. 
Train your horse to: 

  • Load immediately and willingly 
  • Unload easily and in a controlled manner 
  • Lead politely 

You'll find the book broken down into five "Days" or segments: 
  • Day 1: Easy trailer loading begins by solidifying great ground manners 
  • Day 2: Refine your control over specific body parts, gaining respect along the way, setting yourself up for success 
  • Day 3: Two different ways to get your horse into the trailer 
  • Day 4: Exercises for "hard-luck" cases, training tips for everybody 
  • Day 5: Do's, Don'ts and What-To-Do-Ifs, plus notes on tying, horses that won't unload, horses who "thrash" and more 

And... learn to use a round pen to teach your horse to actually look for open trailers! You point, and your horse runs over and hops in!
I call them "days" but you should take this work at your own speed. Each chapter gives you a plan, a goal, theory and homework. Some segments, or "days," will be easier than others. And, while you can breeze through everything in hours, you might want to split it up over days or weeks. It's completely up to you.
Whatcha waiting for? Don't wait till the morning you're leaving to find out if your horse loads!

From the Inside Flap:

Here's a short excerpt from my book "Trailer Training Horses."
"Horses either get in smoothly or they balk.  If your horse balks, he doesn't load.  Period.  Trained horses simply walk into the trailer.  Not after 10 minutes of begging.  They just walk in. That's lesson one and our ultimate goal.  If your horse has become a hard-luck case then it's going to take time, consistency and work from you to get this straight - but you will.  The good news is, horses are actually easier to teach to trailer than you'd think, the bad news is, it takes the patience of an oyster.  Not so much time, as patience.  Horses that 'should trailer but don't' have had some steps skipped in their trailer training.  No big deal.  We'll cover A to Z here; you'll take it one step at a time and we'll get that (expletive deleted) horse in the trailer together!
"Yes, there are ways to speed up the process, to 'more quickly motivate' our horses to get their rears into the trailer.  We'll cover those things.  But in the end, we as humans are as different from each other as horses are from each other.  What works for one horse owner may not for another - and what works for this horse may not work for that one.  Quick story to illustrate my point:  The easiest horse I've ever 'taught to trailer' was the youngest mare in my own little herd.  I'd been working with her pasture pals that day, refreshing each on the art of trailering (they were going off to be bred in the coming weeks).  I'd spent the better part of the morning putting four of them on and off, on and off.  My 3 year-old had been watching.  I broke for lunch.  When I returned I found the 3 y-o standing in the trailer.  All the way inside the trailer.  She'd never even seen an open trailer before.  It had taken days to teach her sister but this one was standing inside looking at me like 'What?'  Every horse is different.  You'll need to shove as many tricks up your sleeve as possible."
