I've seen some of the western riders at my barn put some sort of twine around their horses face. Its a rough looking twine that looks like a noseband placed too high and then from that it goes around the poll. I've seen people put these on under their headstalls and could not for the life of my figure out what it was for.
. Any ideas? Also, I've seen where (excuse my horrible explanation) two pieces of string coming from the bit, one on top strung to both ends and one on the bottom also strung to both ends, and when the bit is put in the horses mouth these pieces of string are put above and below his front teeth, is it a way to make the bit more harsh?
