I have seen horse trainers that jerk on a horse’s lead rope and yell ‘Quit.’ I have seen horse trainers that take a swing at a horse as they yell at him. I have also seen horse trainers that whip horses and even punch horses in the chest. This doesn’t tell the horse anything meaningful. It only teaches the horse to hate people. I want to teach Zum that he can trust me. The loving emotional bond that Zum and I are building together daily is just as important as the lessons I teach him with the lungeline.
