Just watched the 'wild stallion' one, half way . She is SOOOO asking to get hurt. Grabbing his head with her hands and holding it, and being as close to him as she is. All of what she is doing could be better done on a line. It is less stressful to all. less dangerous, too.
A lot of women like to be really close to a horse when they are working with it. When you are too close, the horse looks right over and past you. Being super close is actually LESS effective than being at some distance.
I've seen really good horsemen work with horses, break them, and they NEVER grab on and hold to the head with their hands.
that said, I like the way the horse is licking and yawning. So, maybe there is something to her grabbing and holding and forcing the hrose to be 'touched'. I dunno . . .
First you get with the horse, then you get the horse with you.
