There was a lady at my barn a while ago that did that to her stallion. She would have him fully blanketed in the middle of summer, she'd put those chains around his ankles (the kind they put on Bick Lick horses) and she's tied him up so he couldn't reach his food or water all day. He was also stall-kept and he only left his stall if she had him in the arena.
She got kicked out, thank goodness. I have no idea why anyone would chain a horse up all day.
