    In certain cases yes you may have to put the chain under the chin or over the gums, but even over the nose, none of this should be done by inexperienced horse people.

    If a chain is used correctly it is a very useful too, if used incorrectly than it can be damaging to the horse.

    I've personally had to use a chain under the chin and over the gums but it was only on stallions and most of the time we didnt have to actually "use" it we just put it on to remind them and they would then b good.

    I agree, try to gain respect before resorting to the chain. Otherwise you won't be able to control him w/o it!

    I've only used a chain under the nose (for halter and showmanship) and over the nose (because I was at the Fair and Duke was being pushy and not listening to the halter, and I didn't want him getting away)

    Honestly I don't like using chains, and would do all the training needed to not have to use one.

    I have been having time one on one with my thoroughbred with only ground manners, he loves being under saddle, and working , as soon as a bring out my saddle , his dispostion changes ;

    But his ground manners have changed dramastically , where I got him, he's a rescue so he didnt have the one-on-one that he needs, and now he's a totally different horse without a chain, I barely used the chain, I would put it under his chin, never on his nose, but just to let him know that I did have the chain on him if he acted up, but he; now, his ground manners are terrific and theyve changed drasctically with just some tlc.

    I use a chain for all of my horses only but becuase they are a little more 'hot blooded' and are very excitable horses. I think they are very useful if you know how to use them correctly.

    I use chains. I call it a stud chain, as that is what they called it at the barn I learned to ride at. I only use them until the horse stops trying to pull, then I stop.
