Hmm I don't agree. You can take a stallion and teach it without a lead. I have had a stallion that when you put his leather halter on he knew it was time to be a stud the nylon halter ment he had to lay low.
I don't understand why people think bullying, harsh techniques get through to a horse. You can beat a horse into submission mentally or physically but you know what SOME DAY that horse is going to give you the horsey finger and turn on you. Cause the respect was NEVER there. To get respect from a horse you gotta give it.
Different strokes for different folks but telling people to go to this and that (which can be harsh things) can be dangerous to the person and the horse! No one knows anyones skill level here for fact, putting things out like that is hazardous no matter how you look at it.
Also you get through better when your post are less arrogant!
