Hog tying a horse?

Have you heard of hog tying a horse to have them become submissive to you? I was told that the feet would be tied together so that they could not get up and they would lay on the ground for hours after exhausting themselves from the struggle.

Would this only be used in a circumstance where a horse was completely out of control? Yesterday someone mentioned that they may try this with their horse that was acting up. It sounds pretty extreme.

Maybe that's what it is called. She said they tie the feet, so that they aren't able to get up.

Okay, that seems a little too extreme to be doing that. There are many different ways to tire a horse out!

I think she means laying the horse down and tying its feet together. I've laid plenty of horses down and it's actually quite gentle if it's done right. I would never tie one down. I see no reason for it as the submission comes from the laying down not the staying down.

No kidding!

I'm just not sure that I understand why it's done? If the horse was submissive afterwards, wouldn't they be back to their "normal self" the next day?

Not if it's done right.

Well, that makes more sense if it is done gently and the submission is done through the laying down. She talked about leaving the horse there for hours.
