do they work on the same principal as bells on a harness?

Cowgirl up!

Never used them, as I am one of those who find the noise more annoying than soothing. FYI, most gaited horses, regardless of breed, don't gait on a lunge. You will also hear that you should not lunge gaited horses at all, a philosophy I don't ascribe to, but any work you do on "gait" will need to be under saddle. Good luck!

Hmmm.... My TWH does.... Maybe he is just strange... Lol

Anyway, I love the look of the beads, but I don't think they would do much or any good or bad, just pretty Lol

I think while training or using on a younger horse, the less distractions, the better. Using such things on older and well trained horses, it might be cute and probably wouldn't affect much.

There again, personally I'm not into adding things like this. Except in parades, I like to see a horse in good, correct tack.

To me, a well gaited horse is going to gait..regardless. Under saddle, lunging, be bopping across the pasture, what ever. The gait should be there. It should not be just a sometime thing but a always thing. Not something that you have to work at to get. Then it is a part gaited horse or semi-gaited. I want always gaited.

What breeds are you speaking of? My champion Missouri Fox Trotter, seldom gaited when not under saddle. My five gaited Saddlebreds gaited when put to it under saddle. Never when loose or lunging.

I was going to purchase the rhythm beads just to help me learn.
I seriously just loved the tack but was worried the horse would be bothered...which is likely. It also comes with tassels instead. It's all that fancy Arabian tack that made me think that the horses just eventually become accustomed to it. Some of the traditional Arabian stuff has tassels and beads across the nose, but not on the forehead. I am just a bling type of girl.

Sorry the tablet auto corrected and I thought I had caught all the mistakes. I meant that I wanted the rhythm beads to help me learn the gaits.

I haven't used rythym beads, but a friend of mine brought this thing back for me from Tennessee.




I just tied it to her browband and it times up with her gait. Sometimes I think it annoys her bouncing on her forehead more than anything else. I don't think it actually helps her, but it really emphasises the head shake.

OP, I love those beads in your picture, so pretty!
