The horse I own that was being trained to be a charro horse will charge you when you get the whip out which can be very dangerous. It might take a while but just slowly get him used to seeing it and rubbing it on his neck and eventually all over his body so he will realize you're not going to hurt him with it.
They are both Quarter's and both mares. They were just... pets when we got them. When they see it, they RUN away.
So do I have a rope on them, me holding it obviously, and then try? Where should I stand, in front or beside them??
