    They hired you to do a job, your techniques arnt negotiable, if they don't like it they can take their horse elsewhere. Why is this even an issue ?

    I don't think she is hired, but in a leasing situation.

    One thing you might want to stress, if you want to continue with this horse and swig the owners to your side, is that CA's methods emphasize the horse NOT being afraid of the stick, string, halter, lead etc. That is the point of desensitizing. To show him to not be afraid.

    That's correct - I am leasing, and not a hired trainer.

    I will see if I can communicate the desensitizing in a way the owners will hear...

    Thank you for all the responses...

    I notice that not one person said "Oh yes - MY horse responds just fine to a firm No...and I'm sure this one will, too."

    It would be so much easier to move on if I didn't like the barn so much. Great facility with lots of amenities close to my home...

    Too bad the horse is not as nice as the barn.

    Do the owners of the horse own the barn?

    So you are paying them to train their ill mannered, disrespectful horse?

    Probably need to find a way to get out of the lease and move on. Some battles just arnt worth the hassle.

    See if you can find another lease horse at your barn. Or one that someone would be willing to board there. Either way, you can't fight an up hill battle.

    Oh wow...

    I'm working with an evil pony for his owner, who is VERY soft with him, but she understands the need for firmness... she just can't do it herself due to a severe lack of physical strength such that she can barely even hold a whip in her hand, forget about using it! She watches what Mum and I do with said pony, takes it all in, but can't do it herself.

    Unfortunately, butterflies and rainbows just don't work. If that's what these owners want, then don't bother. Can't fix stupid.
