    European equitation scientists recently concluded that, when given the choice, horses prefer not to work at all; in fact, it appears they'd rather be back in their resting place with their food and equine pals.
    Amazingly, I'm the same way... and so are a lot of humans I know! Strangely enough, I would MUCH prefer to be at home or with friends than at work.

    Just fueling the fire here...

    But let's say that the test was done a little differently. At the end of the schute with two circles, the horse is praised with an amazing meal. At the end of the schute with one circle, the horse is given some treats. The exit is just pasture and play time, nothing "special".

    Do you think the horses who were tested would have chosen differently?
