Given the OP is in Jordan, perhaps she is thinking of traditional Jordanian methods?
I'll be honest with y'all - when I think of "traditional methods", I tend to think of beating the hell out of the horse. I realize dressage riders, jumpers, good stockmen, etc have used better methods for a great many years, but 'jumping on and dominating them' used to be a lot more common, from what I can remember of being around horses in the 70s...
