GREAT article by Jim Wofford. I wholeheartedly agree with him when he states "A tight noseband is a vain attempt to disguise the fact that your horse is not ready for the things you are asking him to do." That's why, if you use a flash, don't tighten it all the way! Leave some room for your horse to chew. I will continue to use my flash but I have never ever put it to where the horse can't chew. It's basically just a part of my bridle but my horse doesn't necessarily need it.
