Yes but Spyder, horses can't bend their necks from side to side naturally! We have to teach them and build those muscles!!
My post was in reference to the draw reins.
First they will not help lateral bend. At best under a very experienced person they aid in developing a correct longitudinal bend.
At worst under an inexperienced person they bring the forehand lower and put more load on the front legs. I have seen horses trip and stumble under their use in the hands of those that should not be using them.
The other thing with a horse with a very long neck is the danger of overbending.
Proper bending should never cause the horse to originate the bend from the point where the neck meets the shoulders. The arc formed in such a bend causes a false outside outline and can cause the horse to be even more crooked.
