In Monty Roberts defense, he only puts the rope under the upper lip as a solution to severe bucking problems. He says that it is better to make a horse uncomfortable than to have someone get hurt badly or killed from getting thrown off. The horse is usually destroyed or gets abused by someone trying to fix him. If a few rides in a buckstopper will fix the horse then I think it's more humane and practical than a lot of methods. I have only seen him once but I was as impressed if not more so with him as I am with CA or PP. His book changed my life and the way I work with horses.
