Lesson 4: Applying correct handling skills for trailer loading

  • Loading a horse into a trailer can be stressful. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In the videos in this module, Amy breaks down trailer loading into a number of parts that are easy to understand and to put into practice.

Read what people say about Amy's teaching:

” Loved it! I have two 2 year olds, and the next two years will be devoted to postural stuff from the ground”

“So much interesting information! I honestly had never thought of the importance of good leading and tying. I will definitely be making some changes in my handling/tying.”

“Amy does a great job breaking down concepts to be easy to understand!”

“Amy gives great advice and tips and has definitely opened my mind to learning more about how I can help my horses. I really enjoyed her overview of how a horse should ideally be framed, i.e head and neck muscle development, straightness and how the handler’s position and connection can influence correct development of the horse. It’s good to hear a different perspective instead of glossing over the basics, like I have done many times.”
