I didn't say beat her into submission. I said to tie her, and to start spraying her down until she learns that kicking is just wasted energy. When she is quiet, stop spraying. Start again, if she kicks keep going until she is quiet. Basic desensitization. I have no doubt that Shay-la is a good trainer, I am not questioning her skills, I am just saying the horse needs more desensitization.
Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.
