Good luck with it. I'd get some help the first time you use it. Put it on the loosest setting. Do some research. I always worry about people trying new training aids without the help of a trainer. Just be careful!
I'm sure you will.
Don't worry EquiSoup, I'm going to get as much research as I can on this, and even bring a little print out so I know how they work when I'm there. I'm probably going to try them on her in her stall, just so i can get an idea of how they work. I'm not going to attach them, just like see how they go through the bit and where and what I'll attach everything too.
I also like trying stuff on her in her stall before we actually go out and do it, that way she'll know what it is, and I'll know how they go on.
I am going to lunge her with the surcingle and caveson and couple of times before i lunge her with the side reins, so she's comfortable with the new gear.
I also plan on going to youtube and looking it up too.
I rather wait until I'm confident in what I'm doing, before i use it on my horse, Other than Parelli.
I hate the idea of bungee cords...
I guess if I were on a really tight budget I'd do that, but I'd probably go to rope of some sort before trying the bungee cords. And i didn't want the typical side reins, I wanted one that, from what i read, was the best side rein choice.
