Trailering the Horse that "Scrambles"



Trailering the “Scrambling” Horse


What is Scrambling?
The term “Scrambling” is used to describe a horse that basically “panics” in the trailer and literally pins itself to the side of the trailer wall and the divider. When they do this they will make a trailer shake severely which can do some serious damage to themselves as well as the trailer.
Why do they do this?
There are various reasons why a horse scrambles.  Normally it happens when a horse is thrown off balance which does happen with every horse although some horses can balance easier than others.

       Wow, it's been a long time since I've been able to get dirty and do some serious horsing around. With the weather (it is winter after all), wrestling and school work that has taken up most of my time this season, it's not often that I even have an hour to go visit the ponies. It's funny to see their faces and to hear them nicker at me when I finally get to escape up to the barn to see them. It's nice to know that they've missed me.
