The way I figured out whether to punish or comfort my
horse when he spooks is to look at a heart rate
monitor! When he's scared of something, his heart rate
spikes as he spooks. If he's just "messing with me",
his heartrate stays steady.

He's not just a horse, 
he's a little bit of
heaven on earth.
