My horse always interprets a pat as "you've done a good job, good boy" kind of thing. But when I pat him, it doesn't make a sound, it's just a soft kind of pat. However, my dad is an old cowboy. He is practically bow-legged from sitting in a saddle all of his life. He's a big man (over 6 ft tall, and 200+ lbs) and he's very loud. He doesn't realize it, though. When he pats a horse, he also means for it to be a "good boy" kind of thing. But when he pats, it makes a loud sound. It doesn't startle my horse or anything, but it is quite loud. Maybe that's what this "trainer" meant?..Idk. I'm not good with rude people. I have a short fuse when it comes to people like her. lol Good luck!
