Haha, isn't that so funny? I used to not be able to ride windy days. ;)

I've started to taking my yearling colt out ESPECIALLY on windy days... (and rainy days, snowy days...)working so far! Lol

I've seen them used but I don't believe in using them. If the horse has a problem with something, FIX IT. Don't hide it. It's a quick fix and doesn't help the horse gain confidence.

The only time we ever use them is to train them to get used to the sound of gun fire. We want to try cowboy mounted shooting this summer. I've gotten my horse to accept a cap gun being fired and my next step is getting in the saddle and firing it. I'll be sure to wear a parachute.

I've never been in a situation where I've needed or wanted to use them. I don't even understand why you would need to use them a great deal, unless you did mounted shooting.

Part of riding is building trust with your horse. Using extra equipment and such in order to make your job as a rider easier is unnecessary and unfair to the horse.
