Yearling Trailer Training

Part of Jackie Brittain’s training and handling of our foals includes introducing them to the horse trailer when they are around a year old.   She does this in an easy low stress manner asking them to progress a little every day.   By the end of the process they will walk on confidently,  stand in the trailer, and then calmly unload.   A few carrots helps get the job done!   These photos were taken about a week into the training.
