They learn by repetition & if that repetition is in a good way then they learn good habits not bad ones. I believe in, "ask, ask, demand" and "slow & right before fast & wrong".

I highly suggest that horses have regular dental care & its even more important before starting them to have wolf teeth removed. For older horses, its very important too for regular floating of teeth to ensure they are able to chew their food and to make sure they aren't in any pain when taking the bit.
