Its the only way to catch him... He is not my horse, but I have worked with him, and ridden him. All his life, right from go, he has been hard to catch, he is 7 years old, and since he was a yearling, or even younger, he did not like to be caught. He rears just for fun (with somebody or by himself, or with other horses) bolts, and is really stubborn, but he has been getting better, and was a good riding horse for a long time before he was left for a few years.
It is not that he doesn't like being caught, or that we trap him, it is just because he doesn't want the halter on. He will let you walk up to him with no ropes, no halter.
He is a great horse, he just needs work.
