    For the people that think this hurts the horse: have you ever seen a horse scratch their back end at all? Bring a hoof up to scratch behind an ear? The move he’s doing here is not far off from the moves he’d be making to do those things. He doesn’t look like he’s being forced at all.

    Yeah, that Appaloosa is an equine yogi.

    That’s a trust exercise. It doesn’t hurt the horse, promise.

    The trainer was displaying a new yoga technique for animals: downward horse.

    First I thought it was kowtowing.

    I’m sorry, but that looks like it is hurting the horse. Give him the carrot already! Geesh.

    Wow! I’ve never seen a horse do that before. Amazing training but awkward for the horse, indeed.
