    Haha I doubt there are horses who would choose to hang with people all the time, if other horses were available. Unless they'd been raised very strangely.

    From reading what he wrote, I think he's saying the grab of the halter panics him and makes him worse, compared to if he was free to just move a bit until he settled. He says moving their feet...
