Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron

Although the Colonel says that “discipline, time and patience” are the tactics to use when training horses, his actions don’t agree. How did his methods compare with the way Little Creek handled his horse? What do you think are the best ways to treat animals, such as your pets?
