I completely agree.
I've also seen this kind of thing happen here in the US. There was a time in my life when I worked with rough and tough "cowboys" on a ranch in AZ where their idea of breaking a horse was exactly that. Get on, hold on, and ride it out. Does it break a horse to ride? Yes. Do I agree with the method? No.
Everyone has their different "training/breaking" theories, whether one person believes it to be right or wrong is their opinion. That's part of the diversity of the horse world. This kind of this is going to happen for the rest of time.
