Although Maverick would go up the ramp and even enter the lorry, he just couldn't work out what he needed to do once he got in there and instead backed off, slowly but surely. I needed to show him that he could actually turn around in the lorry. It took a little while but eventually he got it - and once he had got it he didn't back off again at all.
"I am absolutely over the moon with today. I was getting a bit worried that it wasn't going to work. And I have to say, the look on Maverick's face when he'd worked it out was priceless. I don't think I have ever seen a horse so pleased with themselves. Thank you again for your help. I've decided to go with what I know and trust and what works so can I have some more dates from you please?" N O'M
