I choose my punishment severity depending on how bad my horse's disobedience was. When my 3 year old kicked me last year, you can bet I made her think she was going to die. My horse doesn't move, I ask with increasing pressure and if she still won't move, I will smack her with an open palm. It's no different than a horse biting another to make them move. If you think my open palm smack is abuse then you would be shocked to see some of the things I've seen.
