Not any harder than dressage, eventing, reining, etc. Maybe even easier since they are not trying to balance a rider too.

oh, ok. I get it now:) Now that i think of it though...everything we do with horses is probably hard on their joints

looks like some classic dressage movements, but with no rider. I see nothing tying the legs together but rather two bands.. like bracelets [wondering if they're for decorative purposes?] The first horse looks very familiar with the movements, no hesitations at all. The other horse looks confused at some points but not frightened or panicked.

I can't imagine how much training it would take to achieve this, it looks liek the movements are really complicated at times!

That was my thought too. Kind of like what you see when you see the Lipizzaner show.

I wonder if maybe they do put some type of high hobble on when they are teaching them the movement and putting the bands on is their way of saying 'time to go to work now'. Kind of like seeing eye dogs are when they put their lead harness on.

Yes, exactly.

I saw a picture of this in a book. They put metal bands around the horse's pasterns, but I'm not sure if it's for training or decoration.

I was just worried that if their legs were tied together the might step on it? or get tangled?

The first video in some parts didn't look all pretty IMO BUT, these are just clips of the show, maybe like in the second video they praised the black horse(s?) it just doesn't show it in the video..

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Alright- I am sorry for posting the video. I had no clue what was going on. I never said it was abusive. I simply asked if anyone knew what the videos were about.

I am sorry if it caused arguments and hard feelings. It certainly wasn't my intent.

I do think the second dark horse seems confused, more so than terrified. His jerky movements disturbed me, kind of reminded me of the movie The Grudge.

The white horse was very pretty.

They do have bracelet things on- but the white horse is a much better video and you can see there is no hobbling.

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.
