+1 to the other comments.
I'll reinforce the fact that the smaller the trailer, the harder it is to back.
Smaller trailers are harder to see and the shorter the distance between the hitch and trailer axle, the more prone they are to jackknifing.
So, keep that in mind, don't beat yourself up (literally and figuratively LOL) and keep practicing in a safe location. You'll get there.
