Just wondering you guy's opinions on it and if any one of you have used it on a barrel/pole horse. Thank you!
I know a lot of barrel racers/pole benders who run in Little S without any issues....you might just have to try and see. If is hard to stop then you know you will have to find something else.
What bits and mouth pieces have you tried out on him?
