Rolkur, LDR, and other constraints 'DO' interfer with the horses' air

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...11.00492.x/pdf

 

So at last there is a scientific research study that valides claims regarding the compression of the throatlatch results in airway interference.

This clearly means that the misuse of equipment causing the horse to overbend at the throatlatch is 'abuse' of the horse.

What is USEF, AQHA and other American equine associations going to do now to protect the horses?

What is FEI going to do now to protect the horses?

But the bigger question is just how many riders, trainers and judges are going to complain on behalf of the horses?

Ah but Sylvia Loch and others do not need choke holds....so why allow the morons any excuses?

I do not think there will be many complaints, after all how else are the riders going to control these powerful horses if they can't choke them down?
