Doe, thanks for defending my right to ask my question of PNH students, for the right reasons!
I also agree with Doe that "make the wrong thing difficult" is an over-used directive. People tend to forget to make the right thing easy, & also the word "make" is in there, which is anti-PNH, as I said at start, "Anyone can make a horse do something, but can you cause your horse to want to?"
On my Levels dvd, Linda tells the story of a LBI who backed 2 miles back to the barn, every time he hit his "that's far enough" point on the trail, & no one could stop him! (this was after they'd succeeded in preventing him from turning tail - lol!) Doe is right that LBI's require psychology since force won't work on them. So my question was, how to do that when the "Make me!" arises on the trail, from the PNH teaching.
A connected question: Even LBI's follow the lead horse, along with the rest of the herd, so what's the motivator that the lead horse uses on them, when they say, "Make me!"?
