that actually looks like a good idea. I have an arab that has difficulty holding muscle, so this would probably help him. Thanks for posting the link!

There is no such thing as natural horsemanship, because nothing we do with horses is natural. There is only good and bad horsemanship.

LOL at what anabel said..sounds like a masochist horse???

If I ripped my horse's whiskers out, let alone started burning him after that, he'd probably never talk to me again.
That strapping stuff seems interesting, though..I wonder if it works on humans, too, haha

It's neat because I tried it and the muscle noticeably contracted in most areas. Frida was a little intrigued, but definitely not upset, and a couple of people looked at me sideways, but I quckly explained what I was doing, lol. There's a video on singeing too, but I can't post it because it's on a website I pay money to subsribe to...

I have never heard of strapping or banging. But Aidan hates being petted and brushed, he however LOVES to patted very hard, I literally smack him lol...along his neck back and butt. I am gonna have to give this a go, I bet he would enjoy it.
