I wish I had enough experience to give you a useful response, but as others have said, anything in the wrong hands can be cruel

As a side note, have I really been pronouncing bosal the wrong way for years? Is it bo-zel (like in the youtube video), or baw-sul?

I have always heard it "Bow-zal", or baw-sul, depending on location. Never Bo-zel, like in the video. That's another point though- if a person can't pronounce equipment properly, she obviously doesn't know what she is saying about it!

Funny, I have ridden with a person or two using a bosal and the horse's nose never came back bloody.

Heck, I have a friend who trail rides in a lariat-noseband bosal (which I feel is coarser than rawhide) and her horses have never had so much as a scuff on their nose.

Why do we as horse-forum users even give these crazy teenage videos the time of day? I could hardly get past, her, like YOU-KNOW, like WHAT-EVER way of speaking!

I think most of us, even though we are often humble, have more years working with horses than this girl has even been alive. Not that you can't learn something from a young person. You can always learn from people even if it's simply what not to do. But I don't think we have to get our knickers in a bunch over an immature teenage video.

Do I believe her story of some guy blooding a horse's nose? Probably. It could happen. Do I believe bosals are bad as a result? No way. In the right hands I know they work even if I don't have the education to use one myself.

PS. Not long ago we had a "bits are cruel" thread. Now bosals are cruel. What's next? Rope halters are cruel? Web halters are cruel? Riding horses is cruel.......keeping horses in captivity is cruel. Letting them die out in the wild is cruel. Where does it end?

Maybe it would all be a safer, kinder world without anyone living in it. None of us should reproduce. Nor should our animals. All the cruelty of being alive and living in this messed up world should end!

The original poster on this thread and this one:

Bits or No bits

Would have a lot to discuss.

I don't think the OP meant that bosals are cruel. I got the impression it was something she heard, but wanted to learn more about. Much better attitude than some of those other threads, and posters who insist on making ill-formed generalizations!

I have never ridden or trained with a bosel but I've been thinking about getting one to use on my QH, "Buster Brown." He yields very well with a halter. Any suggestions, or threads here with suggestions?
