hi

so i recently brought a new 3.5 t horse box and my horse very willingly goes in it but once in plays up and flips out when i try to close the doors. any ideas on how to make this easier for her.

i dont have any way of putting another horse in with her.

she has travelled in other peoples 3.5t boxes fine before.

im sort of thinking its my problem not hers but who knows

Has she actually travelled in the box, or have just practiced loading? I would suspect she had an unpleasant experience at some stage and/ or she is feeling unsure about your box. I have a small box which I specifically bought as it was incredibly stable..I've experienced others( normally short wheel base) which are very wobbly as the horse goes in and seem to sway when moving.....and horses seem to not like staying in them after a trip!
