This is a good suggestion because both horse and rider “win” in the scenario, and you’ve also given the OP a good way to “see” what you mean. (Hindsight always being 20/20). Ending before the tantrums is so much more beneficial than trying to deal with the tantrum and the aftermath. Proactive rather than reactive is going to be important with this horse, IMO. As important as the horse listening to the rider and following direction is the rider listening to the horse. Learning when to stop and how to stop is an acquired skill, too, I think. Just like everything else. I’m sure we’ve all been in situations where we asked a little too much or pushed a little to hard. Or just couldn’t see the way “out” because it was a little too late. Accidentally. And that’s how we’ve learned.
