Zum is overwhelmed and withdrawn from me because of all the training he is going through. I understand this as he is in boot camp for horses. There are two interpretations to the word ‘respect’ in the horse world. The first definition of this word insinuates that the horse obeys you because the horse is intimidated or afraid of you or what you will do to the horse if the horse doesn’t obey you. The second meaning of the word ‘respect’ is that the horse regards you highly, admires you and looks up to you. I do not know how to get Zum’s respect in the first way. I want to get Zum’s respect in the second way. Once Zum is trained, I will find ways to win Zum’s heart again.
