What kind of horse would/have you used this bit on?

How does it work?

I have never personally tried one. I did however call / email (don't remember) the mikmar company and they sent me some WONDERFUL DVD's about their company and how the bit came to be. If I had a couple hundred to toss around I would have bought one. I'm too cheep. Should I ever come across a used one I will snap it up in a heartbeat. They work really well from what I can tell. The nose rope keeps you out of the horse's mouth too much and the bit keeps you off the nose. It works like a race starters count. On your mark (horse notices movement of the reins) Get set (horse feels nose pressure) GO (bit engages)

Hope that made sence to you. I'd go to mikmar.com and order the dvd. Its free and could answer more questions than I can.

Never heard a bad thing about them.

I have no clue as to how they work, though.

I've heard good things, but no, I've never used one.

I've looked at those bits for years but didn't feel I had a horse with enough of a problem to warrent the cost. I like the concept.

I looked into those bits. I had contacted via e-mail and after I got a response back asking what I wanted, I never heard back :(

I also requested a DVD that I never got. Though it could totally have been my e-mil server.

I saw them in person at a tack store. IMO, that's a lot of bit to have in a horse's mouth, though if it works well, i'd keep it. I have not tried them on any of my horses. Can't justify at this point spending that much money on a bit....

Number of local people I know use them and said they work great. I've seen them "in person" and frankly I don't like the look: too much of a bit.
