    Far better and more effective? According to what? Tapping Jynx on the bum did not create resentment, it did not make her bolt, she didn't even bat an ear. She picked up the pace and kept it that way for the remainder of the session. Perhaps your method works, but I highly resent being told it's "more effective". In your opinon, that's fine, but as a general consensus, I do not buy it. I have had several "round abouts" with Jynx where I opted to create force for her and reward her by removing the force when she did good. She still perks her ears happily when she sees me, always approachs me when she sees me, and heck, even stands resentfully at the gate with her puppy dog eyes when I'm working with another horse. I have never used more force then neccesary with a horse and I have yet had a single one of them act like anything but a complete pocket pony.

    I know you didn't haul out and WHACK her with the whip, I wasn't saying you did. Sure, a tap might not do much, but with these kinds of horses it usually escalates to the rider possibly really getting after the horse with a whip, and I don't care who says it might be okay, it's not. Not saying you are one of those people though.

    In my experience with lazy horses, the more traditional way and the NH way, the approach I use now works TONS better than the way I used to do things (which was kick them as hard as needed and smack'em with a whip if needed). It just makes more sense to me.
