An excerpt from "Trailer Training Horses":
Your horse won't forget the evil trailer as you move him about; he'll realize that doing two things, keeping an eye on it and doing your bidding, is too much work. He'll begin to pay you more attention, and you'll get closer to the trailer. Keep gaining ground and keep things moving. Every five, ten or fifteen minutes, allow the horse to rest – but only when he's nearer the trailer than he wanted to be before. He rests near the trailer, he works when away from the trailer. Motivate him to want to be nearer the trailer. Should he begin dancing about while standing ("resting"), put him back to work for 10 minutes and then see if he's ready to stand like a gentleman.
Your intermediate goal should be to get the horse to stand near the trailer, looking in. It's important no matter how you approach this training that anytime the horse is near the trailer, you keep his nose pointed into the trailer. Allowing him to look left or right, however briefly is asking him to pick an escape route. Use your Go Forward cue to ask the horse to step up. Should he balk, and he most likely will, bring him away from the trailer and put him back to work intensely. It must be hard work on his part – we've got to overcome his reticence to enter the trailer and that often times takes intensity. Work for a few more minutes and "point the horse" toward the trailer, give your Go Forward cue – and see if you can't get him "more in than last time." Anytime he gets "more in than last time" allow him to stand there and rest. (You'll probably need the rest yourself.) Once again, look for small improvements: Pawing the trailer is actually a good thing; it means he's thinking about it. Don't reprimand pawing. Lifting a leg, sniffing, leaning forward – those are all signs your horse is working with you. It's the horse saying "I'm thinking about it." (rpt)
