Horse training channel? Slowing your horse down

Looks interesting to me, and just another method to try if you are having issues IMO. However, you would have to have pretty good lateral control, it looks like.

These folks have a FB page too, and share training info there, just FYI.

I am not here to open a debate, just to share info. Take it or leave it, not debate it. Come to your own conclusions please.

I just have one question... In western riding is it usual, or accepted to see-saw the bit like that to get softness? Just trying to learn something new, not debating :)

No, no it isn't. Which is why I haven't commented, since the OP doesn't want to even open it up for discussion...

Although why anyone would post something and then demand no discussion about it is a bit...confusing.

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

UGH Cleve Wells. VOMIT. The day I take advice from him is the day I start rowling spur marks into my horse's sides and starving them. No thanks.

Ok, thanks :) I know I'd get yelled at if I did that to my horse in dressage, and I always there were a lot of similarities between western and dressage (as far as collectio, leg yields etc....)

And breaking their jaws, I can only assume by yanking on the reins very very roughly, like I have seen in one video (trying to make the horse back up, this horse didn't get its jaw broken as far as I know though).
