    I'll catch mine looking for the crop out of the corner of his eye. If he sees it, he's a good boy. If he doesn't see it, I know he's planning something naughty very soon.

    They know ;)

    When we trailer, it's day and night. If you've got a crop in your hand, Cowboy GOES in the trailer. Don't need to touch him. You just hold that thing and click and he's happy to go.

    Forget the crop? You might as well have forgotten the whole horse...

    Yes they know. Also know that once in show ring, they can't be corrected, so act like horrors for owners.

    And quit letting horse hold things in mouth, there is no sense in this, as it is not teaching horse anything, and won't be so cute/funny when horse tears up expensive piece of tack.

    They don't do this in herd generally, as leader won't put up with stupid behaviors.

    I never realized it would make so much of a difference :)

    I am glad that I don't really have to use it much- just him seeing that it is there seems to do the trick.

    I haven't gotten to ride him yet this weekend, so I hope that last weekend wasn't just some really lucky coincidence.

    I guess he does. But not as a threat but as a support to help him during your ride, at least he is doing better:)
