I have recently started working with a two year old pony. She is being worked with by my trainer. I have a quick question. When se misbehaves, how much is too much or too little of a punishment? I was picking the pasture a few days ago and she kept sticking her nose into the wheel barrow. I told er to knock it off and popped her on the muzzle with my hand...that's what my trainer told me to do is she won't respect me. Se didn't stop poking her nose into it. I did repeatedly try to get her to knock it off without having to use anything other than my voice. Didn't really work. She is a pushy pony. Down right adorable and is used to getting away with a lot becuase of that. I just don't want to over do it. But then at the same time not make any effect on her at all. Suggestions?
