OK, I'm a bit confused (for those of you who know me, that's EASY to do!! :P) but I'm a bit lost...
Why can't you use two reins with a Kimerwick like the same way you'd use two reins with a pelham? On a pelham, you can have one set of reins attached to "the back loop" (I'll call it??? - like a ring type snaffle bit) and the second set attached to the "front loop" (like a curb bit).
Couldn't one do the same thing on a Kimerwick? Attach one set of reins to the top hole (the A hole) and a second set to the lower hole (the B hole)? The A acts like a snaffle - no to minimal leverage, and the B acts like a curb because of the fulcrum action around the pivoting mouth peice (bar)? Arnt the outcomes the same?
Not trying to debate....I'm just kinda lost on the mechanics of it.
BUT!! I will say, IMHO, the pelham does look alot nicer than the kimberwick.........but that's just me! :)
Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
