I was like that HCG, I would delay my discipline, but I had to train myself to do it right when the horse acts up. I'm also very vocal when I'm working with a horse. I think it helps you and the horse a little bit, especially if you use a firm voice when disciplining. You just have to remember that it won't hurt the horse and the more you let the problem go the worse it's going to get. I never feel bad using spurs or smacking the horse because usually whenever I have to do that, it's because the horse deserves it, because he's either not listening or acting up.
Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux
