Horses will accept it, and some will generally enjoy it, but you could get someone who has no idea about approaching a horse with trimmers for the first time and the horse will then learn to 'fear' and 'hate' it...
No argument here, I totally agree with that. I've seen people not even try to get a horse to willingly accept trimming...they uses twitches and whatever means of force neccesary for the fight the horse puts up. Thankfully none of mine have ever been fearful of being trimmed, but they were always just tolerant of it. I've never had one that just really seemed to enjoy it. I've had her since a yearling and she's 15 now, but she's the only mare I've ever owned. I tell my husband it must be because she's a girl and girls like getting their hair done, lol.
