Trailer-Training Your Horse

Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletin A-279

By Laura Harrison McBride

How do you train a horse to get in and out of a trailer safely and calmly?  With the renowned trailer-training method taught by the late Dr. Edwin Goodwin, long-time equine professor at the University of Maryland, it's simple.

In Trailer Training Your Horse, journalist and equine enthusiast Laura Harrison McBride brings to publication for the first time the lessons and advice of Dr. Goodwin.  The step-by-step training technique works quickly on green horses, it works fairly quickly on older horses that have already been led; and it works a bit more slowly on horse that have have negative trailering experiences.  Most important, it works, almost without fail, and it can help your horse overcome fear, stubbornness, bad training, and bad handling.

To accompany the training, you'll learn how to choose the right trailer, as well as how to prepare your horse for the trip and what supplies you need to make the trip as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
