I'd love to see pictures of what you ended up getting and hear long term how it's working for you.

I have one and I love it..i will post some pictures of it tonight. I am using it on my three year old right now cuz it can work a lot like a side pull for training reasons. he is still getting used to a bit but once he can work in a bit and knows all his cues it will prob be the only thing i ride him in. i used the same thing on my old mare for trail rides and she always responded to it well even after many many miles on the trails

that is great. i have a horse that responds very well to leg ques and just a lil shifting in the saddle but for some reason he is a ****** with a bit in his mouth i had a simple o ring that i was using because that was what they said he was trained in. i switched to the halter just for working him the 15 min now i have this and it fits his well were the halter would slide back.

I totally just bought one for Lacey. =P It was all because of your first thread asking about them too.
And I did get it from ras719. I got the glow in the dark one.
I'm excited to see how she goes in it. I have a feeling that it'll be amazingly better than she usually is but who knows.

Have you noticed how it behaves when you ride with contact? Like will it be super tight on her face if I decide to ride english one day and not just give her her face like I do riding western?

Rest peacefully, Lacey.
