The people around here are not mean in sense of beating their horses into submission or such. Some actually love their horses, and all are mighty proud of them. I just don't see no training. I see horses tied high, no chance to relax the neck, head never lower or as low as the withers, a sisal( I think, some kind if rope) very tight noseband is used to tie them out, reins attached and tied behind the horn, to create the headset. No way to get away from pressure. Next is a bit, long shanks, again horse tied out in the same manner, shanks are horizontal. For hours, under the sun, no relief at all, while the men party. Then they ride. Same head position, any saddle, fitting or not, as long as it's flashy.
Luckily I never whitnessed the " dancing" training......
This is what I see here.
Like I said above, there must be a proper way. I just never see it.
