I can get my dad to do it sometime. He has a bad shoulder, so when he holds his bad arm out and it feels weak, like it wants to drop, the tack item isn't good for the horse, but if the arm feels strong, the tack item is good with the horse. It's the only thing he knows how to do like that cause he learned it from the lady who works on my mare sometimes...
It's handy cause we have even printed off bits from the internet and tested them on the horses, and it actually worked, cause my 3 year old didn't like anything with shanks (no matter how long) and my dad's 3 year old only liked a hackamore and a chain bit. The chain bit didn't test well with any of the other horses...
It works for us, but everyone will believe what they want I guess.
The lady who works on my horse also can slightly "communicate" with horses (I don't reeeally beleive in that) but anywho, she told me that my horse doesn't like my dad.
We have some friends who sent one of their old horses to a "communicator" cause he wasn't doing very good. This communicator didn't know anything about the family, and the Mom, who took the horse didn't give the person details. Well, the communicator said that Buster, the horse, was worrying about two girls. Well, there is two girls in that family and Buster was their high school rodeo mount for many of the events. That horse looked after those girls.
