Topic: Horses do not understand the concept of “no pain, no gain” that is entirely a human idea! Horses may struggle with change and be challenged, but cannot cross a threshold of discomfort or they will simply defend themselves from us. Effective training involves working with horses in a way that minimizes the discomfort involved in change and seeks comfort as rapidly as possible. It is finding the path of least resistance and maximum comfort that makes our training time effective and productive.
