Horses have a long list of things that they don’t like. Most of them disrupt their eating or safety.
7- Horses do not like physical pain:
Horses do not like physical pain, yet it is surprising how they often tolerate it.
When a bit is yanked or a saddle doesn’t fit, it is no wonder that a horse might try to rid himself of it; yet many endure pain inflicted by inexperienced or ignorant humans.
6- Horses do not like inconsistency:
Horses do not like inconsistency, They are more content knowing what is expected of them and knowing that if they behave a certain way, the reaction from the human will be the same each time.
It is confusing and frustrating for a horse to be treated one way today and a different way tomorrow for the same behavior.
