I think the trainers back then would have laughed. Because back then it was common sense and listening to the horse. Not games and DVD's. Xenophon is a great read.
Yeah, but I find it funny that he had to put a noseband on the horse when he lead it, to avoid being bitten.. :P

Differents types of warhorse horse are trained differently.

Well obviously they are trained differently - as is any horse in any given discipline. But they are still a warhorse - that was my point. Reiners and/or jumpers aren't trained the same in a lot of cases but they are still reiners/jumpers.
