    Different people = different views. That's why we have this forum to discuss them.

    Putting them to work gets their focus back on you. By making them move, you are showing them your dislike of what they did. If you acknowledge the behavior by petting or coddling them, then you are rewarding them.

    Ignoring a bad habit may not make it go away. Let's say a kid picks his nose. Unless someone tells him he shouldn't, he'll keep doing it, and think it's alright. He may stop sometime on his own and maybe not.

    This is a big pet peeve of mine. Once the halter goes on... its work time.... whether leading, riding, standing tied. If I am near them they are to focus on me. Not their friends.
    So I do repremand mine. Of course... I've had all my horses for over 3 years.... so I don't have this problem at all now.
    Another horse could be screaming at them.... and they just keep right on goin.
