So I was browsing my local tack store when a non-horsey man came in looking fora a lunge line when shown one he said "that's basically a leash I should just by that?" I stifled my laughter and reminded myself he wasn't a horse person. He did know what a bit was though and upon seeing them stated "why do you make them out of medal? That's mean they should be made of leather."
Correct me if I'm wrong but horse spit and leather probably isn't a great combination
