I know you guys all support 'laying the horses down' but in my eyes.... it seems cruel. I mean just hear me out. A horse that is already confused of what you want(yes, horses are never just acting up because they can, they always are at least a tad confused) anyways, they are confused and now you are making them lay down to win dominance. I really feel there are nicer, less confusing ways to establish dominance. Please remember horses are prey animals, it is nowhere in there nature to lay down and surrender and now you are forcing them to. I just feel sorry for the poor little babies.
Well that is my thoughts on this.
