When working on a young horse you have to figure that they are about as impressional as they will ever be. If you teach them at this age to fear you, they will. If you teach them to over power you, they will. But the hardest thing to do is to teach them to respect you. However, once they do you can never get a better horse. Right now I am working on my third, fourth and fifth horses still in the 'baby days.' I have found from years of experience that the only thing that works is patience, understanding and negotiation.
