Exactly. :agree: But then you get a horse like Kinna who has had such a bad experience in the past that you could think you'd trained it really well but the sight of the vet on the day causes such an engrained reaction that it would be hard to ever reduce the stress to an acceptable level.

Yes :agree: and is kind of what I was getting at with regards to clicking something that is rather a difficult experience for them. My rationale with clicking 'bad' stuff like face touching is to try and get beyond the stress so that relaxation is possible. I think every horse, every situation has to be treated individually.
