    Keep in mind, unlike a bison, a LOT of cattle ranchers also use public pastures or rent out land (up here anyway). My grandpa has rented his land out for several years now for a herd of 20 cattle to come and calve during summer. Any doctoring has to be done with horse and rope, they aren't going to build doctoring chutes everywhere.

    Likewise, the neighbours have a herd of bison. Due to the sheer size of a bison, they simply aren't mass produced like cattle are. There isn't the need to have to tag them, brand them, or routinely assist with birthing like you do with cows thanks to centuries of domesticated screwed up breeding. They are MUCH better equipped to still handle being left mostly to their own devices. And as stated, they're not a creature you want to transport much, so all bison owners I know keep them strictly at home where they have access to all equipment.

    Agreed.

    I've heard about things of this nature in the gaited world, but not dressage.

    Not saying dressage doesn't have it's skeletons - it absolutely has practices I don't agree with ... but I've never heard this one.

    Oh, I agree completely! It did sound like I was suggesting that bad practices don't take place in dressage, although that is certainly not how I feel. There are bad apples in every sport.

    I was thinking along the lines of soring, which I have never heard of happening in the dressage ring.

    If I am not mistaken, there is a technique that uses boots to put immense pressure on the leg until raised. I believe it was made illegal in the actual arena, but some people still use this technique. Done improperly, it could cause pain. Am I wrong? (honestly asking here, but I was informed a long time ago that this was a legitamate technique.)

    I can not even picture how a boot that puts pressure until the foot is raised would work.

    Apparently, they put the boots on tight. The horse prances to try to get away from the pressure.

    But the pressure would not go away when the leg is lifted.

    And dressage people do not want their horses to prance. Nothing about a free moving shoulder = prancing with your lower leg snapping up and down.

    In saddleseat, you would use a roller band to encourage the upward movement. Some people use 'stretchies' to get that snappy knee action working. I've never heard of it in the dressage ring though....I wouldn't think any knee action was desired in dressage.
