HOWDY FOLKS!
Many horses got left behind in the recent fire, because they would'nt load.
We are giving a free clinic SUN, APRIL 15TH @ 10:00 AM
SGB Ranch (formerly roland creek farm)
65050 US 285 Bailey Co 80421 (mile marker #227 is IN driveway)

If you have a hard loader and can somehow bring it to us, we'll have it loading easily by end of session.

Its free to bring horse or just come to audit
Bring your freinds and family, music, food, and fun times afterwards

Demonstrations and insruction given by Dan Bechler Training,
(yes thats me) who happens to be a very gifted horseman with proven techniques how to load horses calmly, confidently, and quickly without all the abusive aids.

Horses are a "flight instinct" animal, getting a horse to walk in a small metal "coffin" in their minds can be a little tricky!
And you really dont want to beat a 1000 lb animal with its eyes popping out of its head in a trailer anyway, right?

Our goal is NO horse is ever left behind!!!!!!!!!!

Please contact Dan for any info,

We have a sponsor group started, if anyone wants to donate services, time, or FOOD please contact Dan

If we dont find a local rest. to donate catering we will have hamburgers, hot dogs, and beans on the grill.

Heck, you can come if alls you want to do is pet a horse!

Howdy Horseman, (not to hi jack your thread but)
we build and service trailers, and found that alot of trailers are the reason for hard loading horses.
The flooring is either bad or has been replaced wrong, resulting in a springy floor and a horse won't go where he feels unsupported/unsafe.
Had one in the past where we replaced it and the owner was thrilled becuase the horse went right in where before they couldn't get him in no matter what they did.
We currently have one in the shop that the owner said was a cursed trailer, but we found the floor to give and move even under a light persons weight.

So it might be wise to check trailer floors as well just to see if that is a problem.

Sorry about jacking your thread again.

No problem Martin!
Everyone should get their trailers checked regularly by a pro!
Bad trailer rides, unsafe trailers, and trailer accidents all contribute
to horses not loading.

The 2 most exrteme cases I've ever seen..........
One horse had actually partially fallen thru a rotten floor
Another was in a trailer that rolled,
Hard to blame them for not wanting to load!

Make sure your trailers are safe and drive carefully!
