Bonding with horses
Hello again. Well, my post on Tuesday sure kicked up a bit of a storm judging by all your comments. Thank you so much for these and it's great to see such lively debate. I want to make it clear though that I am not condemning the use of round pens entirely. They certainly do have their place in training and I use them extremely regularly. What I am saying is that, in my personal opinion, they are not the place to start building the bond with a horse that I believe is absolutely essential to any sort of shared performance. So let me talk a little about bonding.
