For some horse owners there is nothing as gut wrenching as loading time. It is an uncertain process that is time consuming and frequently ends in anger and sometimes dangerous situations. We breed, raise, show and trail ride horses. Learning to load is part of all our horse's routine. But because we see lots of strange horses that requires loading into a set of stocks we see many horses that have to be taught to load into them so we have had a lot of practice.
