I have to say, I agree with RiosDad. You don't have to be harsh with it at all, it's just reinforcement. Yet again, Rowzy, if you're afraid of pulling too hard on his mouth, than you are right...you probably shouldn't use the curb until you are more familiar with it. I will say that I am all for natural horsemanship...or should I say I used to be. I realized that most of the time, you just don't have to time for natural horsemanship. Not because you don't literally have the time but because it won't come in handy if you are in an accident. You have to realize that horses are just plain out, freakin dangerous and frankly, I don't want to risk my life with natural horsemanship when I can get the job done in a more benefical way.
