New Pics of Dancer

Free lunging my friend's 6 year old Saddlebred mare Dancer. Don't ask me what that thing is cause I really don't know. I pretty sure it's to keep her head in the correct position??? Correct me if I'm wrong :) Sorry for the pics being so big

Yeah, why not just let her run free without that neck pulley thing?

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

I don't know if I'd call that a "correct" headset...seems to me the second part of it is actually preventing her from lowering her head. I get the cercingle, bridal, and sidereins...but the part on top is practically holding her neck UP and asking her to bring her nose in with the sidereins at the same time...

Each to their own...

i Would think it could be something, they use to teach her to collect ?
But, in other cases, looking at how the horse is shaped, i wouldnt say that is the case.
I still think its something to use, so that she is carrying herself correctly.
Because her head is abit to high up, for it to possssssssssibly be in a collection..

Sorry, no gadget teaches a horse to collect - and if it does, it teaches incorrect collection and is only teaching a false headset.

That's like riders who fidget with their horses faces with their hands/reins to get their horse to "tuck" into this false headset, then the rider goes around believing that their horse is collected.

Incorrect.

Wow,
She is a pretty girl!
I agree with MIE on this one.
That is a surcingle and side reins, but as for the rest i am not familiar.
Must be something they use with this particular breed which I am also not that familiar with...
Best of luck! She sure is a looker!
