    This has showed up even on our news websites, so I decided it is room for discussion, what the hell and what you guys think of it?

    I'm not a fan. The horse looks pretty irritated when it gets up.

    Well, that was different. With the wrong horse that could go very badly. I am not sure horses are the right market for Yoga. First of the design of equine yoga pants has me confused. Would the sit at the horses waist or stop at the stifle? Also, a horse yoga mat. What will youtube have next? Equine Zumba?

    I'm impressed that the horse was trained to do that but it just looks sooo wrong

    This has nothing to do with yoga... The horse is being forced to lie down by using some extremely sensitive pressure points on his face - that can be done with a human as well. Besides, this is the finished product - we have no idea how the horse might have fought in the beginning phases of his "training". There are ways how to lie a horse down without even touching him or applying force in any other way, but this - I don't like it. Another point to consider is that, if this is supposed to help this horse with trust and relaxation, then it's done without considering the horses' psychology at all! Horses simply don't lie down with their bellies up to show trust in another herd member, and they don't make other herd members to lie down as a sign of dominance as well. This person seems not to be able to distinguish between dogs and horses...
