    On the alternate side, we had a gelding who his owner deemed rude, disrespectful and stubborn. My trainer worked through the problem with the horse, but what started to help the very most WAS the chiro work. His back was so tight, it was hard for him to do what he was told. Only my trainer could get him happy because she would always loosen his back undersaddle, before starting any work. So maybe what I am getting at here is a lack of knowledge will also badly affect your horse, maybe not stupidity, but the owner was simply not a good enough rider to help the horse. Nobody's fault, but the chiro helped them work though it.

    There are behavior issues caused by pain and often horses try to tell us when they are in pain and it can get confused as bad behavior. I think it's good to an extent (apparently you can go a little too far as I read earlier) to rule out pain first depending on the problem. After that its time to take steps towards remedying the unwanted behavior. I don't tip toe around my horses, I correct unwanted behavior at the level it deserves. I spend a lot of time just sitting out in the pasture just brushing them and hanging out. Spending quiet time with a horse is a great way to get to know how they communicate with you and the other horses. They all communicate in similar but subtlety different ways. Each horse is an individual no two horses are exactly alike just like people. And it's best we remember that when training you have to adjust your training method some to the horse so they understand what we want.
