Hmm I should have made this clearer. My friend bought a horse for barrel racing and she called me up saying he just wouldn't run like his ad said. I took him in to work with him and she was right. He didn't like barrels so in my terms, he had hit a wall. If a horse doesn't like what they're doing, they won't perform to their best ability(in my experience). In that case, I said your horse has "hit a wall". No amount of training is going to make him like it anymore or perform any better so he has "hit a wall". That same horse was sold to a lady who did trail ridiong and he excelled at it.
Sorry for any confusion I might have caused, but I hope I cleared it up now. =)
