Stocks (as restraints)

Narrow stalls that prevent a horse from moving around while being bathed, shod, examined by a veterinarian, or undergoing any other procedure to which he might object.

They come in several designs, allowing different ranges of movement and access to the animal. Some have solid panels at the front and rear to protect people from getting kicked.
