We always hear stories about how owners are told their horse's have their number. We have seen examples of this....however, this doesn't mean this is always the case. Remember the saying, you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.....this is true with horses too. We get several horses a year where someone has tried forcing issues with the horse....instead of just asking nicely and being patient, they get the spurs and whips out. Remember Sugar? A little sugar with Sugar went a long way. Sugar didn't want to leave the barn by herself....so push her hard, get after her, she's got your number.....well that didn't work. Doing it Gary's way, she goes down the trail by herself and quite comfortable when she knows she can trust her rider.
