Your 40+ trainers at think the physical restriction of a horse by cruel and abusive methods are fine should be tied up, left in the cellar for a week to experience just how it feels.
GOOD horsemanship is not directed at getting the horse to "submit" to authority but to understand that what we want from them won't hurt and will build a relationship where both parties look after the needs of the other.
