Thats kind of what I was alluding to. All we know about the whole deal is that 40 seconds. It was a bad 40 seconds and a complete train wreck but we don't know how we got to that point.
I like Les vogt bits. I have one and you can see it in my avatar. However I wouldn't throw it in a greenes mouth and expect great results. My guy is being ridden in the two rein with it and at the pace I'm going he may be in the two rein for several years. Les probably didn't have that luxury in this clinic. Still not an excuse for what happened.
