Also.. What I mean by harsher is it can deffinitely do more damage than other bits if not used correctly or overused.
Again, I'm saying a difference of opinion is okay, I respect your guys thoughts and opinions.. But saying someone can't do this or that then feeling the need to state why you're right and everyone else is wrong isn't.. I've only been asking for you to stop picking on Pat..
Now, I won't be on all weekend, maybe this weekend I'll get to see my horse one last time before she is very likely sold... I don't know how I am going to cope without her..
But anyways, just one last little thing before I leave this thread... A good horseman, and a good rider, you can be both... But there is a difference between the two. A good rider knows how to sit well in his seat and give cues and commands well... Well a good horseman knows how a horse is feeling and what it's thinking, he is less likely to be suprised by the unexpected, because he expected the unexpected and was prepared to fix it. He knows what happens before what happens happens.
It is possible to be both, it is also possible to lack in one or the other. But it doesn't make you a bad person, which I feel that you guys are making him really sound like
