Holy big bits!

Im not trying to start a bashing thread but I was shocked when I looked at his page and the first thing I saw was a picture of cathedral and other harsh bits for sale... Kind of illustrates to me what I can expect in his training.

It takes a very skilled trainer to get a horse into a cathedral or spade bit. They aren't that harsh as the horse has been slowly brought up into the bridle, as its called. To get a horse to accept and work in one of these bits is the epitome of a true bridle horse.

I'd be one to think his training may be excellent, just judging by the bits. If he can be that light on the hands, the horse is listening.

Problem comes when people bit up, harsher bits to correct bad behavior.

My horse has and works nicely in a cathedral bit, however daily I ride in him in a ported correction or a square port low correction, - and if I wanted to I could throw a snaffle on him and go too.

Just because this guy makes these bits, doesn't mean his training is harsh or severe. Some of these bits require quite a skilled hand to make them balanced and functional.

No one would use a bit like this to break a horse (i hope) theyre for a very well trained horse and rider.


A bit like that and a spade were what the buckaroos used..

The point of those bits is NOT to use them. They get bad wraps because people with lunatic, untrained horses toss these in their horses mouths and yank on them. They don't use them for the reason they were made... Communicating with your horse with the twitch of a muscle. A trained bridle horse will actually hold that bit in their mouths without a bridle, from what I hear at least.
