Use of restraint [My Broken Jaw & Arabian Stereotypes]

I have a simple and easy to understand rule that I apply to the use of 
restraint on horses, especially any that causes pain:  If I wouldn't do it 
to a human child under the same sort of circumstances, I won't allow it to 
be done to my horse. I'm not saying there's never a place for restraint, 
even the painful kind, just that with my rule, there's lots less fuss, muss 
and trauma.  Vets and other practitioners can be replaced.  A horse's 
memory of a rotten experience is notoriously difficult to undo.
