During a race if a racehorse starts swallowing there blood after biting there tongue will it make them stop running. And should you use a tongue tie and a figure eight at the same time. Also her tongue was cut in two places on both sides of the tongue bleeding bad. The tie was completly full of blood. Let me know if this is normal or should we run without anything, No tongue tie or figure eight. Also can you tell me what exactly a figure eight really does for the racehorse.
