An excerpt from "Round Pen First Steps [Downloadable PDF version]":
I've heard horse trainer and clinician Clinton Anderson say that if a horse were not born with a tail, but instead woke up with one tomorrow, he'd spend the day running away from the thing. Horses become desensitized to items that they spend their days with, things they see often: the hay rack, salt block or cat he sees everyday are no big deal. Cows scare "city" horses; they're no problem for ranch horses. You've also seen this desensitizing in action on any horse that won't move forward, despite our kicks: He's learned that the kick doesn't hurt - and frankly, he'd rather just stand there, thank you. Get on a green horse and give him a good kick and you'll likely end up on the ground. The old school horse has become so "used to it" that it (the kicks, the pleadings) have ceased to mean a darn thing. (rpt)
