I use a bit on my greenbroke mare, only b/c she is really headstrong and stubborn and she bucked me the two times I used a hack, but she did well on it up until then, lol...
I want to eventually get her into a hack. I actually respect people who have enough control and respect of their horses that they don't need a piece of metal in their mouth.
