There's also a lot of misconceptions about the "peanut rolling" thing too. A lot of the horses that have really been bred for western pleasure automatically do that sort of thing. There have been several instances where I've had to actually work on getting my horse's head up, instead of down. :/ Just because a horse's head is on the ground doesn't mean it's unhappy. It might just be comfortable.

And I don't know what you mean by throwing "split reins" and "snaffles" in with a bad connotation? Those are fairly standard western equipment.

TO ALL THE WESTERN PLEASURE RIDERS/TRAINERS! - I didn't post this thread to offend any of you. That type of practice just didn't look right to me and I wanted opinions on it. I have NEVER seen a trainer ride and supposibly "train" like they were doing!

The one trainer that caught my eye, every time his horse even raised its head a inch, he popped him. Like everyone says on here, any hit can be harsh in the wrong hands. Well he was yanking so hard the horses mouth was wide open. I could almost swear it was bleeding!

I can say the same for the questionable practicing of barrel racing. Not my cup of tea to see your type of "trainers" running and yanking down horses with tie downs... different strokes.

It was a open state show but they had the ABRA there.

Ok, here is what you do. You see abuse at a show, so bad you think horses are bleeding, you walk right into the show office and report it. ABRA has rules against that sort of thing, as do all other recognized associations.

Actually, I've been competing in barrels for 7 years and I'm yet to see barrel trainers use tie downs on the training horses. Every time I watch a barrel trainer I see a snaffle in the horses mouth and the trainer with light hands. Yes, I'm sure there are plenty of horrible bad barrel trainers in the world but in my area I have never seen a trainer tie there horses head down in yank. I have seems young riders and simply riders do it. But I have not seen any of our local trainers.
