My mouth hurts.

Just looking at these bits.

Bedford Tack

Whomever 'designed' these 'bits' was either:
a) Planet Gorgon crazy
b) Higher than the clouds high
c) A & B combined

And the colt breaking bit? Look at those shanks! Oh my gosh! Aren't you supposed to use a snaffle?!

I fret on the general comfortableness of a hackamore, and they expect you to put these torture devices in the horses mouth.

Auugh I feel nasty dirty all over x-X I need to bleach my brain or something.

Wait! I'll fix it....

Five rings on that itty bitty little bit

Oh my god I found one with a METAL noseband.

Who comes up with these things?! If I had a tack shop, I wouldn't allow these in my store. Let alone letting people buy them.

Wait! I'll fix it....

I hate that people assume just because they have a colt, it needs a harsher breaking method than a filly.

They using the generic version of colt to mean young horse - not the gender.

Any bit is harsh in the wrong hands. I thought we established that many many many threads ago.

Eww. =[ If you need something THAT nasty to get anything "good" out of your horse, you are doing something TERRIBLY wrong. Stick those things in your own mouth and see how you feel about it. =|

I ride my horse in a solid rubber bit and she responds beautifully. I truly believe that less is more.
