I'm so very sorry I read it too fast and got something wrong at 2am in the morning. Why don't you go nagging on someone else, someone who at least disagree with you about trining the horse to solve the problem nstead of bitting up? I've already explained that I don't see a harsher bit as a solution, but proper training. Already in my first post I said clearly that she has to find the problem, solve it and then use a nicer bit.
I don't really see why you felt the need to tell me how wrong I am (and at the same time in some weird way say I was riht, but still wrong) in the other thread either. I'm not going to answer it anyway, I'm off to sleep now.
That is the problem with forums. It's difficult to read the feelings behind posts. I don't think JDI was "telling" you, you were wrong but explaining herself and I must say I couldn't agree more.As Zab and JDI posted, nothing can take replacement of proper training and I would fear for those who take shortcuts by investing in stronger more invasive tack. I think it's one of the most common mistakes made by riders. They over bit their mounts instead of figuring out what the horse is trying to tell them and correcting their own riding in order to fix that problem.
As I have posted a fantastic book that is fantastic about explaining all this is the Myler company book that was released. Excellent read for anyone who wants more knowledge on the use and pros and cons of so many bits that are available. :)
