Ah, well that's an entirely different question than what you originally asked.

I assume, based on the information the OP has given us that resistance free training means you don't care that the horse is sore, has a saddle that doesn't fit and tries to bite you when you cinch up the saddle.

It's pretty much the same question. "What is ___" and "What is the difference between _____ and _____" is, at it's foundation, the same question asked two ways.

Anyway... now I'm confused because you've contradicted yourself. If she meant the horse is never harmed during training, how do you come to the conclusion that resistance free training means you don't care that the horse is sore?

It is way too early in the morning for me

ETA: Nevermind, I googled it and have my answer. Thanks anyway! :)

It wasn't even close to being the same question and I was being sarcastic in my answer. Like, no kidding there's a contradiction here.

I hear coffee helps.

No need to be rude or condescending.

I don't drink coffee for two reasons: One, I'm pregnant, and Two, it's nasty.

I wasn't. It's called the truth.

I don't do coffee either. Tastes like crap.

I care alot and if I did something to damage a horse either physically or mentally I could not sleep. I should watch that word physical because I will use force to get what I want but nothing that really hurts the horse.
Example. Tying a horse securely to a solid object and expecting him to stay. He can fight it if he wants, physical restraint but he will remain tied.

Check your saddle fit, make sure you aren't cranking on the cinch when you tighten it up and check for soreness. Sounds more like he's in pain and is trying to tell you something vs. it being behavioral. Also- using a bunch of padding can actually exacerbate a saddle fit problem.
