The best way to get a good bond is with glue, super glue can be a bit harsh, a nice glue stick works nice though... although many people also use duct tape.

I prefer duct tape myself - gives you a good wax when you break the bond unlike super glue which takes skin off as well, ouch!

I agree with that fully. What I meant is just because a horse is given & 'respects' boundaries doesn't mean they necessarily trust someone & respect them as worthy leader. That is part of the equation IMO, but not the full story.

Also comment about forcing wasn't directed at you Kayty, sorry it came out that way, just generally.

...Oh & thanks for the giggle of the last comments, Neurotic & Kayty!
