Laying a horse down is an extremely old method of teaching submission. There has always been a lot of controversy about it and was "successfully" used in the movie "The Horse Whisperer".
Like any training method it should be done by someone who knows the method and how to apply it correctly. It's not for every horse but it has it's place. I've never used it but I have seen it done with amazing results.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
