I've observed that when Snickers is chasing or cutting a foal or a dog in his pasture, he sometimes tries nipping at it not to let it cross a line - maybe there's an advice how to avoid it? I wouldn't like him nipping at a person or a horse during training. Would having the person to make him quit nipping do the trick?

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Yes, that is part of the horse's training. Horses that become too aggressive are culled from cutting since they loose point or can be DQ for that behavior.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Thanks for the input. It's now looking more and more possible to carry out in the very basic levels. Yay! :)
