This made my day - and the response here baffled me completely!! I think just like you here; down to the last detail, and finding people who thinks like this is not something that happens every day. A few months ago I posted a very similar post in a Norwegian (I'm from Norway) forum, and the response there could not have been more different. After a few days it was one of the most read and debated threads - the difference was that people where deadly offended, and couldn't believe I could be so disrepsectful to my horse as to expect it to simply obey me. The point that you don't ask for more than the horse can give mentally and physically seemed to be lost, as people were disgusted at my mentality of wanting the horse to be on job when with me, doing his best, accepting that I'm the boss. Apparently this was outrageous.
