Any suggestions from fellow stockies would be helpful or if experienced it before would love to hear your story **) My 3yr old who I have had from day one as a floating issue that I am scratching my head with what to do. We started float training him early on, took him with a buddy, small trips, nice bright/roomy float.. he was good, first time a bit unsettled but no issues. He continued on like this for a while. Then took him to the Royal- mistake on my behalf. He was two and it was the longest he had gone in a float, first time travelling in the dark and also he was alone. Got him to Perth and he was lathered in sweat. Least to say he didnt load well coming home that day. After that we had a few loading issues but I managed to overcome them and now he self loads. He has always pawed a bit when the float's been at a stand still but nothing too major. Now the most recent issue which he did occasionally before but never too bad is that he literally throws himself around the bay. Back/forwards/side to side.. he leans on his bum and paws as high as he can with one foot then swaps to the other and continues. This is what causes the rocking around of the float and car plus he is destroying the floor of my float whilst making a racket and causing me to be anxious. Now the tricky thing is he is not consistant. Sometimes he does it, sometimes it's not as bad. Things I have done: -Travelled with another horse -Travelled alone -Short trips -Longer trips -Hay -No hay -Swapped sides -Tied him -untied him - left him in the float and only paid attention to him when he stops crashing around - he has been leg restraint trained and hobble trained. - a trainer has taken him for a drive in his float and no issues? I am sure I have done more but just cant think of it. When I unload he comes flying out of the float. It's a straight load double and an old Loadstar so not big but a the same time my 16.2hh TB fits in and stands quietly whilst my 15hh terror bashes the crap outta it. I haven't tried an angle load yet or other floats- this is my next thing. However it's all when we are NOT moving. I am not sure what to do, I dont have the luxury of buying a new float at the moment even though I am not even sure if the float is the issue. I would like to take him places but I am thoroughly hating floating him anywhere. Ideas?
