The July issue of Horse magazine (on sale 8 June to 5 July), will help you overcome loading issues. Equine behaviour expert Justine Harrison reveals how the first step to solving the issue is to work out what your horse or pony's fears are. For example, they could be worried about being separated from friends, being travelled next to a horse they are scared of or they don't like what is at the journey's end. She also considers how equine and human vision differs, and why this can make a big difference during loading.
