I would have brought that up too.
Yanking on a horse's mouth (except in a severe emergency) is not acceptable to me and I will not do it, regardless of what the owner wants or does not want. Doubly so if it's to achieve some artificial headset out of pure ignorance.
If the owner wants to get "collection" by abusing his horse's mouth, he can go ahead and do it himself.
