The article Vida posted says they keep the bit in a better position...I wonder if I should try them.
I haven't had any particular problems with Hoover, other than he can be a stubborn butt very occasionally...but what horse isn't? The only think he has ever gotten the bit caught on was the roof of his mouth, when he was trying to pull it through. He will try me sometimes, but the majority of the time he's soft as butter and only requires finger pressure to move him.
Do you think I should get him the bit keepers?
