I was surprised to see it too. It was on a site with great horses for sale. I always admired those horses. I thought if I will buy a horse someday that site will be the best place to find a great one. They all look so well trained and so gentle. So when I saw what bit they put up for sale I was really disappointed. I hope that they don't train their horses in this device. I am sure that this bit will be ok in the right hands but a milder one it will have great results too. So why use this bit instead of another one that is milder? If they have a great trainer, with great hands he will do great with another bit too.
