Yes, I agree correct contact, along with a good metal choice, creates a wet mouth, but to me,that is not seen by any obvious 'wettness', outside of the mouth, but by a quiet closed mouth , which indicates to me a happy, thus moist mouth.
I just did not see where any picture, would show a 'wet' mouth, but rather a happy and relaxed mouth, thus, not a horse with a foamy mouth, working the bit JMO
Just a different way of saying the same thing, as I looked and looked at video of the bittless dressage horse, to see the 'wet mouth', and did not see any rewarded wettnes, visible on the outside, thus, it must be just another way of saying a horse is working with a quite , relaxed and closed mouth,
on his own, no cavasson, thus assumed his mouth is therefore happy and moist.
That should always be the case, JMO, with a horse ridden not just bittless, but with a bit also.
