Does your horse have to step down off the trailer or do you have a drop down ramp..There is always a simple reason for a horse’s reactions.Ask yourself,what is he trying to tell me..what is it he can’t figger out himself and needs help from me,the one he loves and trusts.Step downs scare horses for a number of reasons one is as the horse moves back the front of the trailer comes up,even if it is still attached to your truck.that imblaence really scares them..Or they might have really hurt themselves once that you were not awear of.Next time watch closely if they know you are trying to understand the problem,they will find a way to tell you
