This is Why i dont like bits

I know it kinda sucks but it is kinda true what happens to alot of horses.
I like watching videos like this to see alot of reality

I've seen the first video so meny times my head could expload. To be honest the first one is PETA crap.

With the secound one you only posted the first half.


The horse still looks uncomfortable to me.

Why did you start yet another thread that you KNOW is going to get heated?

I couldn't wathc the second bitless video.
As for the jumpers, the narrator said this was a Russian Federation jumping competition.. I have no idea if that is representational or accurate for that country.

As for the horse riding in the bit, I bet I could work with that horse and have him more responsive and on the bit. Maybe not, but the way the girl was riding has some to do with why the horse was strung out, on the forehand and stargazing.

I just want to say that a indian hackamores,mechanical,bosals,bitless...anything without a bit can do as much damage as a bit can if not used properly.

Instead of people being "know it alls" and making videos like that dissing bits etc...

Why not make videos showing how to correctly use a bit or hackamore?

Exactly.


To me that horse looks like your typical greenie who lacks training on how to properly go on the bit, collect, etc.

YouTube - Bit vs. Bitless Experiment, 1st horse (bitless)

The horse still looks uncomfortable to me.

Just made it through this video...I agree horse still doesn't look happy, still heavy on the forehand, still strung out, still tilting head to side, tossing head, etc. Looks like he could use a chiropractor visit more than a bitless bridle.
