This morning I started thinking about what causes people to abuse horses when the horse doesn’t perform for them exactly like they would like or what causes somebody to overlook the responsibility of continuing to train their horse. I came to the conclusion that the person really does not enjoy the process of training. They don’t realize that training itself can be such a pleasure.
I think of it like opening up a package because we are really excited about just finding out what’s inside. That is what makes training so that it is not abusive because we really don’t expect any bottom line on it. We are just happy with whatever results we get.
