Most Pasos tend to give up easily (not all--my Isabeau was very stubborn) so if you keep at it, they give in. When I adopted a rescue Paso from Horse Protection Association of Florida, the trainer said, "You know why so many Pasos are abused?" I said, "No, why?" She said, "Because you can. They just take it and take it and keep on trying, unlike Arabs and Thoroughbreds who get mad and get even." I have found that to be true for most Pasos, but not all.
