Practicing trailering with your horse can be a valuable skill, even if you do not need to go anywhere. It allows the horse to associate a positive experience with the trailer, and can make loading when you really need to a breeze. Chincoteague Bay Dreamer, or Mop Top, had not been on a trailer since 2009 when he was brought home for Chincoteague. Expecting him to be nervous, we decided that we would just introduce him to the trailer rather than load, but he had other plans. Mop Top walked right into the trailer as if he had been doing it all his life. Just goes to show how easy going Chincoteagues are, and how much they trust the people in their lives :)
