I don’t like them to stop because then they think that is acceptable at a horse show. I don’t think it’s fair to train one thing at home and expect them to forget it at the show. If you aren’t showing and don’t care then that’s fine. But it’s not mean to make them go they are perfectly capable of it – in the wild if a horse stopped to poop when running away from a predator he’d be eaten.

OP, do you mean he doesn’t want to move when he is uncomfortable/not feeling well, or when he is actually pooping? - handmade custom wood-burned brushes, stall signs, & portraits, etched glasses, and custom stuffed ponies
