It seems we have similar training styles
Painter went through a bucking stage, he tried alot of things to avoid work. I never let him stop, and everytime he bucked he got spanked (hand, didn't carry a crop), so he'd buck bigger and I'd spank bigger. I only had to win a few times and he decided it wasn't working, lol. Hasn't bucked since
