Don't worry, I'm aware of the looks I get from dressage riders when they see me train in a curb on occasions. I don't want to have to go on an validate my reasoning here, but yes I do understand the different ways snaffles and curbs are used. I have excellent reasoning for doing so and it works well. Snaffles are good. But if they don't sit in the right spot, or if your horse resists once and realises when and where in their mouth snaffles can lose their 'bite' as a bit. It can lead to your horse doing so again. I prefer to stay off their mouths as much as possible. I also desire respect for the bit in their mouths without excessive force. The resulting argument I've had from some is that "Curbs are harsher than snaffles". No. Not the way they're meant to be used. Not the way I use them. Apologies for somewhat validating even though I didn't want to. I've gotten slammed sometimes because of what people don't know and pass judgement on :).
Back to the point. Jog or no jog? Thank you for your time. :) (Sorry about the novel?)
