Sorry but my english isn't perfect, the word that i should used is training instead of breeding, the training is used to achieve some kinds of steps. like this horse https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqL_Rozg...

If iris only for a short while could you post a shot not restraint?

What I don't understand is why a horses neck needs to be restraint with breeding

Well i post it in the PET category and this page isn't only for for animals in the wild, if you don't want to see this pic because you have a different perspective about the breeding of the horse. you are free to just leave and see another photos. I insist this practice isn't animal abuse, just a form to train the animals, used only in shorts periods of time.

Nothing but the case of what I see I would not to be restraint like this and wouldn't want to see any animal forced into abnormal position. Remember this site is mainly for animals in the wild. This is a pet that doesn't look right to me.

how much do you know about the breeding of the colombian criollo horse?

They are different opinions, as I said these animals are healthy and have no problem. ofcourse, its use has cosmetic purposes but is performed by staff who care these animals all day and would not do anything to harm the animal as this specimen for example has a high economic and sentimental value to its owner.

If this is a true Colombian Horse it would not be needing this restraint. It would be in a field running unrestraint

From what I know this is cosmetic to force the neck into an abnormal position only for show. Which I would not my neck to be forced into a position that was not normal. Would you want to be?

this horse was very happy and healthy, the thing in her mouth isn't the same thing that we use to stop the horse, this is different in the pic you can see two little chains adapted to their mouth without any pain, used to correct
the position of the head and never we have any problem with this system. the owner of this horse is a great veterinary and i can swear you, these animals are treated with love.

This is a case of abuse. Forcing the neck into an uncomfortable position against the horse's will because the the pain in it's mouth is more then it can tolerate. It also literally destroys the 2nd and 3rd vetebrae in the horse's neck. Acceptable in some cultures but in many it is animal abuse
