I agree. They feel more pain and that's why I'm very careful about "discipline." In fact, I have never hit a horse ever lol
Ask, tell, demand. Ask them to to do something, then tell, and then demand. Only then do you crop a horse, make it brisk and firm, but not too hard
Yes. Don't beat them but don't give them a love tap. Assertively tap them once and then leave it alone
Horses have more nerve endings than humans do. It hurts a horse more than a human to get cropped. Be very careful when you use a crop please.
That's what my trainer tells me to do. Just don't do it too much, or hard enough to hurt them.
