Well...I guess its cool the control of the horse.....

But that guy is...uh....special to think its safe to do that. All that has to happen is for a dog to get loose or a horse to get hurt or frightened and he's dead.

But yeah the subtle cues and control could be cool I guess

I don't think it's good for the horse either. Horses aren't meant to lie on their backs with their feet in the air for so long.

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

I don't see much trust there. What I see is a horse that is made compliant by a professional use of pressure points on his body and of his instincts as a prey animal (once you are down, you don't come up again...). Looks cool, sure. But I much prefer to see a horse who is willing to canter by my side and leave his herd for me, than a horse who knows he should better get down to the ground, if I press some points on his face and neck...because by gods they can hurt if you apply any more of that pressure.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I got to the handstand part, and then realized I wasted enough of my life watching that much.
