Perhaps I wasnt using the correct term. Maybe its not a tie down as its on the top of a horse's neck rather than under it. My trainer (please dont start a rant based on her methods) will use a rope to tie a horses neck to the pommel of a western saddle. Her therory is if a horse cant get its head down far enough, it can't buck (very high). Greater chances of the rider staying on, the horse has to work harder to buck and its gives the rider more warning time. Yes, the horse needed training and that's why she was working with it. Can we just move on to terrible horse ads now? :)

Okay, I understand now. What you are talking about is what Monty Roberts calls a "buck stopper", where you run a small rope under the upper lip and connect it to an overcheck type thing, where if they go to put their head down, it yanks their lip off (not literally, but you get my meaning). Causes pain and encourages them to stop bucking because trying hurts.

Truthfully, I'm not against someone knowledgeable using something like that on a dangerous bucker, though I would be extremely hesitant to use one with a rider on the horse. IMHO, too much risk of the horse rearing up and falling over when that lip rope comes tight.

grand prix horse - good home only for sale in Sligo : €10,000 - DoneDeal.ie
Nothing wrong with the ad itself (aside from the poor spelling). I just question why the second picture is obviously off of a stock photo website (so the horse in that picture, is unlikely to be the horse advertised, or even related to it).

I looked up the stock photo, which is of Josť Bono Rodriguez riding Javelot du Loup (who is a gelding). While the ad says this

The mare jumped nations cups.
. I'd say this is a scam.

Now this is just a dumb one. Advertising a stud, with just a picture of the horse's butt. Real classy.

This isn't really a for sale ad but the way they are conducting the training of this horse is probably going to give me nightmares tonight. I'm not a horse trainer but I think I see several things wrong with the situation. . . .

Just trying to ride this crazy thing called life
