    Herdbound, I'm with you 100%. Having been around horses for many a year I've seen women transition from treating horses like the large animals they are, to treating them like small children. I don't get what is missing in their lives that they need horses to love them. The horses owned by these people are disrespectful and these women are the most difficult to work with. I've seen it too many times.

    Treating a horse like that...being a pushover...is exactly what is wrong with MOST horses today and you literally do become a "pushover" toy for them :) That is because people watch too many movies and don't understand horses...real life horses...are not like that. A horse isn't motivated to be good because it "loves you"...love is a human emotion...horses may accept us but you can't love one into making it do squat. One of the horses I am working with right now though the owner has sat through EVERY single session I have with her horse...and she is willing to admit she had to change...for the past two days she has gone out and worked the horse alone...and she got "join up" and that tickles me pink because only NOW with her the horse is finally showing her respect...she was charging her, striking her, knocking her down, really a pain to be around...but now this lady is going to start enjoying the horse and that makes me so happy!
