So, this horse was being 'trained', by a sheriff's office, to be used as a patrol horse?
That makes the offense even worse, with someone in authority, who should be investigating these types of incidents, instead ,are the offenders!
They are not training a trail horse. They are creating a horse that will become either defensive when other horses come up on them, or fearful to the point they will freak when another horse come sup on them
Sometimes, putting a horse that has had little socialization with other horses,into a herd setting, where that horse will be 'disciplined, taught proper herd etiquette is an effective tool, esp a horse that lacks proper respect,and will help change the attitude of that horse towards humans also, BUT, as mentioned, you don't put them in a confined space
