You can try them at the Expo here for $20 or so. I've seen one, however looking at the people trying it I didn't feel an urge to try. The reason is every horse feels differently: I mean the amount of contact, the way it moves, even how you have to communicate with it. If they tell me I need to hold reins that tight it means absolutely nothing to me, because even with my 2 horses, contact feels very different. So it's fun to try, but I'm not positive how helpful it is in real ride.
