An excerpt from "Round Pen First Steps [Downloadable PDF version]":
Because we can never, ever, desensitize the horse to everything that he might possibly come into contact with, your work here is not so much "rub him till he quits moving and gets used to it," as to create a "conditioned response." Show him something potentially scary, repeatedly reward him for staying put. Like one of Pavlov's famous dogs, it's a matter of exposing your horse time and time again to something spooky - and removing the stimulant before he blows, conditioning him so that his first reaction is to pause and consider - not bolt. In that respect sacking out has much in common with "Spook in Place," the major difference being that sacking out deals with objects that are likely to touch the horse (our hands, the saddle), "Spook in Place" deals with objects that theoretically keep their distance.
