I move the scary thing around and on Zum’s body, backing away with the scary thing if Zum moves or seems anxious. I make sure Zum is solid at one threat level before moving on to a bigger threat level. I never scold Zum if he reacts to the threat by moving. I try to remain calm. I patiently work through the progression to teach Zum not to move his feet when he is frightened. When Zum couldn’t handle all the scary things in the neighbor’s arena, he reared and bucked and ran off. I was calm and patient and I did not scold Zum. My neighbor scolded Zum which only made Zum angry. I have learned that Zum can only handle so much at one time.
