    reinforcement increases likelihood and punishment reduces likelihood. Shocks are called positive punishment because you add (positive) something that reduces the likelihood of a behaviour (punishment).

    The withholding of a positive reinforcer is negative punishment, you've withheld (negative) something, the act of which has reduced the likelihood of a behaviour (punishment).

    i think this is the source of most confusion. Negative in this context does not mean "bad" or "undesirable" or "aversive". Negative only describes that you've REMOVED something.

    Training can occur without bit or saddles.

    Training can occur without fear.

    There are examples to follow out there if that is the direction you want to go.

    This is late, but just in reply to loosie, I've had her scoped for ulcers and while I believe chronic stress STARTED her cribbing, she's been doing it since she lost mama as a 2 month old and never stopped.
    Good-oh, figured I was probably stating the obvious to you, but thought it worth pointing out that it has a physical basis. Many people do still think it's just boredom or such.

    Since we are discussing behaviourist terminology, this is entirely incorrect. Of course, there are many different understandings of all sorts of words & terms, but if we can't stick to behavioural terminology in a thread on the subject, then no wonder it confuses people!

    Negative DOES NOT mean something aversive & vice versa.

    I guarantee you that the horses in that video have been tapped more than one or two times each by the little rod that man is holding in order to learn to do all of that stuff.

    Carry your point out a bit further and explain what type of training that would imply.

    Is the horse whipped into submission?

    ^I don't get the point of the above questions, but I thought Honza Blaha(an awesome, inspiring horseman IMO) started out with & uses many principles of Parelli.

    I don't know. I've never personally seen him train. However, to get those sorts of reactions he has to have put pressure on those horses and taught them to move away from it immediately and quickly as soon as he gives them a signal. Obviously it is a fantastic method for those horses and he is a remarkable horseman, but I don't think his training has much to do with the topic of this thread other than that he is another great trainer who uses pressure and release to achieve his goals, not clicker training and cookies.

    Do you personally know that he was inspired by Parelli?

    Please explain.

    It has everything to do with the thread as the thread asks where train might evolve.

    Is this an example of one kind of evolution?

    Or is it just the point of the thread to just discuss the meaning of words and how they are used in different regions of the country?
