My mare loads on the float okay but rushes out backwards. Do I just get her to take a couple of steps in then back her out and so on till she is comfortable about backing out?

Angie’s Answer

Yes you are correct in ONLY taking a few steps, then BEFORE she gets worried back her out. Use approach and retreat and read her thresholds. Just take the time it takes.

I would also suggest watching more float loading videos, they will show you this process in lots of detail.
