im really sorry but im tired of hearing that a lot of peoples answers to things revolve around unnatural devices. They simply arent needed and the sooner people realise we don't have to bully our horses into doing things the better off we will be. It comes down to speaking your horses language and working with what he understands.
To the OP, groundwork and building respect will help see you through the problems. Whether it be clinton anderson, frank bell, pat parelli or any number of other credible horsemen, you will find the techniques you will learn enable you to get maximum result from your horse without using any mechanical/unnatural devices and clinton anderson is very easy on the eyes so it makes it all the more enjoyable lol
