Thanks for the replies :)

First of all; I'm not recommending this to anyone ;)

Second; I ride Crow with all kinds of bits and bitless as well, and I don't agree that a snaffle has more control than a bitless. A severe bit or bitless might give more control, but only in situations where the horse doesn't listen because he finds you unworthy to listen to, not when he's afraid or scared. I agree that this particular version is less able to control the horse vs a snaffle or other bitless, but that's also why I got benefits from it :)

I didn't have any problems at all after the first 15 minutes when Crow and I figured how to communicate without my constant corrections in the left or right rein. Last time I tried, in march, we didn't get it to work tho. And I take that as a proof that my riding has become better, in my point of view nd to my goals.

I read your opening post but I must have missed it....Why not just use a bosal?

Haha, nifty idea!

I agree with you to - I have more control over my Arab mare just riding in a halter then I do with a bit. She has a sensitive face, and is much more responsive. She doesn't neckrein well yet though, so I may hold off on your idea, hehehehe.

A bosal isn't very gentle, and simply.. I want to be able to use as gentle means as possible :) Plus, I don't have any bosal. And the entire point with this change was to get away from my control-freakiness with the reins and teach the horse to walk right by himself (which he already can if I just let him ;) etcc, so a real bosal isn't really what I was after.

And btw to all of you, this doesn't mean I'll ride with that everytime forever, I'll still switch headstall and bits x)

I ran my old endurance horse for 17 years with sidepulls but near the end of his career I switched to a simple snaffle because it was lighter and saved the hair on his nose.. Ride enough miles and anything laying on the skin creates a wear including his fly mask
