I wake up this morning and in my FB feed there is a post from a local natural horsemen up in arms about something a parelli person said about him. Apparently she found a photo of him tying horses with a bridle/bit.
Natural horseman guy say its fine. All of his horses are taught to stand quietly and give to the bit therefore there is no danger.
Parelli person say no horse should everrrrr be tied up by the bit. It's dangerous and could be harmful to the horse.
My opinion: I would never tie by the bit. It takes two seconds to put a halter on or to loop one around a horses neck. I *might* loop a rein around a fence rail so that if they did pull back it would give, but that would only be to run into the barn to grab something.
Do you tie with the bit/bridle? Why? Why not?
