Dealing with a horse that was highly aversive to loading



Presented by Gemma Pearson.

Gemma initially looks at approaches used to retrain horses to load into a lorry or trailer, and what evidence we currently have for these. She then focuses on a complex case involving a mare that was highly aversive to loading. Gemma discusses relevant history, differential diagnoses, and the behaviour modification programme. The case brings together many different contributing factors and Gemma explains how she developed a shaping plan to address them all, and how it was implemented over a prolonged period of time to achieve a happy horse and happy owner.
