Pakistan Horse Dance?

My daughter has view a couple of video clips of people within other countries who have trained their horses to "dance". She know something of training, and there are many comments on the clips, regarding whether the training includes any rigorous or cruel techniques. The horses are not visibly discomfited or unwilling, nor do they appear distressed. The handlers do not appear to use any rigorous methods while the acutal "dance" is performed. Does anyone know anything of the circumstance of this particular type of exhibition. It is regularly used for a display at weddings in these countires. Please don't comment beside guessing or hearsay. What do you actually know?
Answers: After reading your interrogate, I went to you tube and watch all of the video clips of the horse dance. They reminded me of very advanced dressage exercises, so I roamed the internet for several hours and read up roughly it. I found this website of a very able dressage trainer and on her home page, she has a slide show...one of the photos of that slide show shows her using any a driving or lunge whip and a sort of harness (not a driving harness, not really...looks similar to one that you can control lead change, etc)...that to me, looked like it could be the cause of the dancing training...as I watch all of those clips, I notice one thing surrounded by all of them...#1 The horse be holding his tail quietly, using it for stability as he should and was not twitching or swhishing his tail as a horse would do if the exercise hurt or be difficult or was a result of hurtful training. #2. I be reading about another big horse show within Pakistan, and they were mentioning how sturdy it was to train the musicians to save in time near the horses...so, I went put a bet on and looked at the clips again and sure enough, if you will discern, the music doesn't begin until the horse sets the rythem, afterwards they start playing in time near the horse, not the other way around...when the horse stops, so does the music and later doesn't begin again until the horse does. I be watching (on tv) an advanced dressage class and the horse was literally canter in place and near every step, he would turn just a few inches, going full 360 degree...it was divine...then like horse went around the circle the divergent direction changing lead with every step, inches at a time he worked his passageway around the full circle...of course, when the lead change, it initiates within the hind quarters, giving the dint that the horse is dancing within synk with adjectives fours...so, not actually seeing training of these dance horses, but after doing all of the reading and watching the clips and seeing the horses within dressage, I actually give attention to that is adjectives it is, a form of dressage from the ground...check out this url and look at the photo that I was referring to.http://patewoodfarm.com/about.htm... and you can see how those dance horses could easily be trainind both effectively and humanly.
I don't know much in the order of Pakistan Horse Dance but what i know is that Dressage is very similar to making a horse do with intricate steps, jump, and such. So, she should look into Dressage, especially at what the Lipizzaner Stallion school of dressage surrounded by spain is doing. They are highly trained stallions doing fundamentally intricate steps and taught to skip.
Compare the Lippizaner training to the Pakistan training. Bout the same.

I intuitively like the means of access the Spanish School of riding do things better. The horses do look distressed to me.
i think its stupid
Your mentioning of the Horse shindig has given me a flash final :) I'm pretty sure that your daughter must have loved it. I love it too, and you simply can’t predict the feeling/sensation of looking at this dance surrounded by person.

Horse Dance, which by the bearing is not only perform on the weddings but also during many local & folk exhibitions, is by and large a feature/part of Punjabi Culture. Especially in rural areas of Punjab horse jazz is considered as essential part of celebrations (Punjab is one of the four provinces of Pakistan) (Same is individual replaced by Camel Dance in Sindi & Balochi culture).

The horses trained for this purpose are not thoroughbreds, usually a local breeds are trained which are, when compared next to thoroughbreds, are smaller in size. Mostly White or Black horses are preferred to be trained for waltz. (Just because of being more charming looking). Most people prefer to train mares to some extent than horses. (Am not really sure why is that, will have to ask my father or uncles :)).

Dance is usually perform on the beat of a Drum (called “Dholl” surrounded by indo Pak), use of clarinet and “Ghungroos” (large number of small bells tied together) is also very adjectives. Ghungroos, mostly in Red Color are also tied to the front legs of the horse, (which by the method produce a very magnificent rhythmic sound and it seem that even the animal is enjoying his skilfulness to create this sound)

The horse is handled by his handler while dance and is not ridden by anyone at that time. (People anyways avoid riding the horses trained to dance.)

As far as training of the horses is concerned; all right there are no steal plates surrounded by their legs :). Nothing unnatural is introduced in their body. Use of jarring methods? Well Harsh Training methods is a relative term, and it really depends what you consider as ruthless and what is acceptable for you.

My personal judgment in this high regard is that no harsh training technique are used to train the dancing horses. During initial stages horse whip are used to give nouns, which of course rationale pain, but don’t brand name a "crack” and is as necessary as surrounded by case of training of other such animals.

Later on, during the waltz whips (made of ropes) are used to craft a loud sharp sound, to provide direction and command to animals.

Hope this help
