Well I guess the context has a lot to do with it. If you work for a race horse breeder/trainer I guess he/she probably knows what they are doing and had good reason for wanting things done the way they are done; and if you are working for the person I guess you have to do as you are told even if you don’t like it. But from my point of view, training cattle horses with the aim of having them as soft in the mouth as I can get them, I wouldn’t lead them by a bit, but there’s probably a world of difference between what you want in a cow horse and what you want in a race horse, I wouldn’t know, never had anything to do with race horses.
But I guess what Im saying is no you are not wrong, if you are in the right context; however if you are leading horses around for a horse trainer, I suppose its his/her way or the highway.
