I have used a magnesium supplement to help calm my Arabian gelding and Quarter mare for hauling. Both good about loading and unloading, but when they get nervous they can prance around as they back up and risk slipping or tripping and obtain an injury. To prevent this, I use magnesium wafers to take the edge off.
This solution will not cure a horse who refuses to unload or load. But it will help a horse who is a bit nervous and may dance around in the trailer, get nervous about backing out or exhibit any stress about trailering.
