Agree with you skittles, that I don't see that as having much to do with respect, but then again it's obviously a very subjective term & I don't see a lot of things that people lable 'respect' or 'disrespect' in the same light.
To me, 'respect' is a 2 way street - you must respect your horse first in order to *earn* it from them. IMO the horse becoming 'obedient' is an outcome, but not synonymous with respect. It includes understanding & trust, so on those levels, desensitisation can be a part of 'respect'.
