 I've got a horse that will rake his teeth down the trailer and skin it down to the aluminum.  Is there anything you can put on the trailer to prevent this, other than not tying him to it?

This horse has to be moving even on his back, if you're moving him he's fine.  If you stop him he goes to chewing on the bit, or something.  If someone is tied beside him, he's got to mess with them.  If he doesn't have something to do he tends to get into trouble.

LOL!  This SO sounds like my old man! There wasn't anything he doesn't do to make noise!  Scrape the fenders, pop the rubber on the tire treads with his teeth to make them go Boing, untie himself, and all sorts of other goodies!    

There wasn't much that we could do to prevent him doing this.  Never thought of a muzzle. Now we have pens, so he can eat grass instead of trying to eat everything not edible.

Agree on the muzzle being the easiest option if he'll tolerate it.

Have you ever tried a magnesium supplement? General anxiety is a symptom I'm learning. We have a compulsive bit chewer (with other symptoms) who we are trying on MagRestore.

I have a friend that was talking to me about MagRestore at our last show.  I'll check into it.  Thanks

Maybe attach a grazing muzzle to that horse while tied at the trailer so he can't get his teeth on it.
