So last week I watched my new trainer ride on of his sale horses. I noticed that the bridle had a makeshift wire nose band. At first I was taken back, using a wire to discourage a horse from opening his mouth seems wrong in the heat of the moment. I continued to watch and then I had a change of heart. I don't think its ideal, but I also didn't think it was totally heinous either. The wire was not thin, it was not tight (i could easily fit 3 fingers in there) and he is not a harsh trainer.
Like I said, after thinking it over its probably not the worst thing in the world, but I'm still unsure. What's you feeling? Posted via Mobile Device
