Help to get them in the trailer

Problems Loading Your Horse?? - $100

I can train your horse to load.

No more time wasted loading that unwilling animal.

No more butt ropes, blindfolds, tranquilizers, oats, whips, stock trailers, or companion horses. I can train your horse to load into any trailer (slant, straight or other). The goal is for you or anyone to be able to load the horse calmly without either one of you getting hurt. It's not safe for you to go into the trailer ahead of the horse or into the space next to where the horse is going to load. We want to release the animal a few feet from the rear door and have him calmly walk past you into the trailer. I use the Lyons method and it works 100% of the time and will load every single horse, regardless of his breed, size, disposition, or past experience. We won't be luring your horse into the trailer. We will not be using feed. There will be no hay or grain in the trailer because we're not trying to feed the horse, we're trying to teach him to load. Even the most difficult horse should not take more than 4 hours to train.

Satisfaction Guaranteed. No Results No Pay!

Always helps to have a horse willing to get into the trailer you buy!!!  Is that only $100 total no matter how long it takes or per session?


  1. Yes... what happens in three or four weeks when your taking them somewhere else again? If the horse never had any bad experience, he may remember his positive loading behavior, but if they were a problem loader before the 4 hour session, they will need another $100 session... every time??

    I actually don't mind Lyons' methods in a lot of areas. I also think there's a place for initial training with feed that teaches the horse the trailer is a positive place to be. And you can train a horse to self load without using the Lyons method, so I think he should be less "derogatory" when speaking of other methods.

    I don't care for slant loads, but you HAVE to walk in with them to secure them. Same thing with a lot of manger trailers (actually, I don't much care for those, either!). So he's kind of incorrect. And some horses need the companion horse for the ride, not just to load...

  2. I had a horse that I could get loaded in a lot less than four hours. But it had to be a stock type trailer- open inside. You had to put a chain over his gums and you had to put a whip to his ass a time or two and tell him in a not so nice voice to "Get IN!"

    Without those things in place, you would be standing around forever and he would still NOT be in the trailer.

    A friend of mine tried loading him once when I was sick and couldn't be there. They did all of these things and he just would not get in. He tried going over the door, rearing and striking at them, when they put a war bridle on him he layed down. They took the war bridle off and he still layed down refusing to get up... he layed there as if laughing at them.

    The last time he went down, as he did, they pulled him halfway inside. He refused to move or get up so they literally had to winch his 16h, 1200lb ass the rest of the way in. Once inside he stood up and glared at them with a defiant look.

    The day I sold him he was still a prick to load. Buyers teenaged daughter thought she could 'love him into the trailer'. An hour later he still wasn't loaded. I whipped him twice on the butt, told him to "Get IN!" and he still hesitated but finally loaded. But before they were able to get the truck started he broke the snaps on 2 of their 3 brand new trailer ties.

  3. "The day I sold him"... what a great day, eh? Was he that much a pain for other things?
