When Zum bolts because he is frightened, I don’t punish him. When he starts to bolt, I use one rein and quickly pull his head around to the side. This bends Zum’s body into the turn. I don’t want him to run blindly forward with his head pulled to the side. I pull him around in a circle, making smaller and smaller circles until I can stop him. Then, I reintroduce Zum to the scary thing and reassure him. Right now, he is afraid of quails flying out of trees, big, black rocks and broken branches or logs laying on the trail!
