I have never ridden in a bosal though, have ridden in mechanical hacks to try horses out, but that's it. I have been watching videos all day, from them it seems it isn't much different from the way you ride in a snaffle, so I'll give it a try.
I don't follow a paticular trainer from RFD but Clinton will teach a "one rein stop" I believe in it as a life saver.
Also when a young one starts a buck while under saddle you teach them to follow their nose around they can't buck while moving their hindquarters away from where you are pulling the head. But you have to be careful if doing this with a snaffle and works best in the Hackamore setup.
