The white horse does seem to have it more polished.

I am guessing the second horse in the other video is a greener version. The white horse shows what the darker horse is learning to do.

Good find on that video.

Did the horse in your avatar photo volunteer to bend at the pole to that extreme or did you have to teach the horse to do that?

I could easily say that you taught the horse that against its will.

Horses move their ears to listen and pay attention. Ears perked forward all the time is not a realistic thing. Again, reference your avatar photo.

My horse has always had a natural headset since I started riding her , I've actually left her to do her own thing. If she want's her head down she has it down if she want's it up she has it up. I have never actually pushed my horse to do something she didnt want to do . I ask her to do things and because I have spent so much ground time with her we have a very good bond. I take the time to work on things by ASKING , not making :)

Actually she does ! I NEVER make my horse do anything and I can say that honestly I ASK her to do things I don't push her. She has always been a willing horse to learn and I would never put a tie down or anything on my horse.I've had her since she was a year old and have spent countless hours working with her on the ground building up a trust so there is never a disagreement on ASKING her to do things, we have a really great bond.

Then how would you explain her ears not being up while walking around a field or ring on her own ? She is just a horse to have her ears not forward , horses don't have their ears up 24/7.

There is no point of argueing you really I know how I work with my horse and everyone has their own opinions. You think that video and what they do is nice and okay I on the other hand don't . That's my opinion I respect yours but I don't respect you questioning me and my ways of training and horses.

I am kinda intrigued by this :) Do you think that is hard on their joints?? Just wondering.

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

You are the one who noted the horse in the videos ears were not up and that meant the horse was not happy.

So it is OK for your horse to not have its ears up and we are to believe your horse is happy.

But another horse that you do not like what it is doing can not be happy, since its ears are not up.

Do I have that right?

Let me quote you again in case you forgot what you said before:

In the video of the gray horse there is something around his front legs but there is nothing tying them together. (If there is it has to be very long because at times his legs are not very close together.)

The horses in the other video might have the same bands on the legs.

Yes you are right I said that, my horses ears arent pinned to the back of her head and she is also not thrashing around.
