Examples of my rhythm beads
What do these do? I've heard of them, but have never really been sure what they are used for.
WHAT ARE RHYTHM BEADS?
Rhythm beads for horses are the newest equine craze and are quickly gaining in popularity across the world. Many people don't know that rhythm beads have actually been around for a long time and were originally used by Native Americans to become "one with their horses" and to help protect them both from danger. The beads were made from feathers, shells, beads and stones, and would show the rank of the Native American in his tribe.
WHY SHOULD YOU USE RHYTHM BEADS?
Equine rhythm beads, also known as speed beads, are not only beautiful but have many uses as well. They are an auditory learning device and a valuable training aid. Rhythm beads encourage your horse to follow a rhythm, much like a musician following a metronome through timed beats. The jingling of the bells accentuates the tempo of the horses gait and help the rider to better control the pace, as well as easily pick up correct leads and diagonals.
Equine rhythm beads are also wonderful for desensitizing and training younger, abused or naturally spooky horses. They are also wonderful for trail riders. The jingling of the bells alerts other riders and wildlife of your presence on the trails, making the ride safer for you and those around you, and helping to cut down on the number of creatures that "pop" out of the woods.
"Green" riders can also benefit a great deal from rhythm beads, by listening to the bells they will be able to learn how to keep their own bodies in rhythm with their horses stride. The soft jingling of the bells also helps to keep the horse and rider focused on their ride and helps to eliminate outside noise and distractions.
WHO CAN USE RHYTHM BEADS?
Anyone. Rhythm beads can be used in all disciplines. They are gaining popularity and whole hearted support from Trail Riders, Endurance Riders, Dressage Riders, Reiners, Barrel Racers, Jumpers and Gaited Horse Riders around the world! Any rider in any discipline can use Equine Rhythm be

Ok I'm changing this up just a tad! I'm still going to pick 2 people at the end for free custom sets of rhythm beads. But I have so many entries so far, and it's going to be so hard to choose! I'm also going to pick 5 more people to send custom sets to for $10 shipped if that sounds good to everyone! Let me know!
