I wouldnt want to leave a horse tied for hours as a training method. It just seems not quite right to me. Like the horse has to give up.
I actually like the idea of making the horse back up and come forward until he decides the idea of standing still was better and he'd rather do that. But the windsucking, well personally I'd smack for that. Its not healthy and needs to be reprimanded.

Horses DO stand tied for hours at shows, events, etc.

Windsucking is a vice but it's also an addiction. I can't see punishing a horse for an addiction. Trying to prevent - yes.

Is this new behavior for the horse? I assume the reason for the crossties is to tack up and work, tack off and back outside or feed?

I can understand a horse standing for hours, but for no purpose other than him to give up. Not something I would do. Not unless someone had a good reason besides that horses stand for hours at shows. I believe in making the animal believe its his idea to do the action (or non action) that way they do it willingly.
