I didn't mean the horse's head was literally strapped down with a tie or device, it was just the only word I could think of to describe that the horse was forcably keeping its head tucked to its chest. Hence the quotes, hehe. I mean, if the reins/rider's hands are keeping the horse behind the bit with such exaggeration and it cannot move, I would nearly consider it "strapped" down.
