Every time I think I hate Western Horseman magazine they manage to pull a half way decent article out of their a$$.
For those not familiar with the practice of laying a horse down there is a article touching on how it effects the horses brain if done correctly.
There had been a thread started maybe about two months ago on the subject, however there was quite the debate between laying and throwing, the actual reason why, what it achieves if done correctly, and the dangers for someone who has not ever been taught how to do so properly. I was glad that in the article it was stressed that this was a method that could not be taught by book or dvd.
Anyhow, good read for anyone that wants to learn a little about the reason/thinking behind doing so....
