Totally and completely and utterly disagree. And, I must say I have never heard anyone ever make a statement like this before. I have spent years riding with a snaffle and never used any sort of tie down. Learn to train, learn to ride, stay safe. Don't rely on equipment to control a horse - it can also limit a horse and be MORE dangerous.
