Loveee, what exactly is it about when YOU put a bitless bridle on your horse? Are you telling me you don't do that because you want your horse to take you someplace, in other words, YOU make your horse DO something?

*sigh* This is going to cost me a fortune in therapy bills for him isn't it? Just so he understands that the bit is an evil thing that hurts him so much.

Shhhh, *whispers* horses who are insane don't know they're insane, if nobody tells him he should be in agonizing pain and terrified of all things metal because of it, then he'll never know better .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Ahh, Smrobs, always the font of wisdom! So I can carry on abusing him with the nasty hunk of metal?

ETA: Look at the terror in his eyes! And a flash noseband too!

Why not? I plan to continue abusing mine with bits as well. Curb bits no less.........Oh, the humanity!!!

Oh wow, I'm going to call PETA on you, he's obviously scarred beyond all repair.

what a tortured animal...it's clear that he only looks happy because you are forcing him to with a magical piece of metal.

Hmmmm...still waiting on the answers to my earlier questions...she doesn't seem like the type to not have something to say. Wonder where she went?

Well if they do need some out side help I wonder if we could get a group discount?

Hey you could go down to Horse Talk and find the animal communicator thread and find one to ask what your horses think of the god-awful torture devise in their mouths! I'm sure that'll clear everything up. Maybe the group discount thing will work.
