Ok, you see this horse? This horse is a 3 year old that T is supposed to be riding.... Well, he is a jerk and very rude.. so....
He needed a little attitude adjustment, see his leg tied up?
Yeah, when you pull on the rope and the halter just right.. well he falls down!
The theory behind all of this is that you lay them down and show them who is boss, they Should respect you a little better.
But just in case.. they threw a tarp over him and let him lay for a bit.
Personally I think this technique works, I've done it before to some young horses I was ridding and their attitudes completely changed. I don't know if it helped this horse, I'll guess we will find out tomorrow! Plus, the technique reminds me of something that was done in the old days.
There, that's better. (I like messing around with my photo editor)
