  2. Horse Training
    As someone who is passionate about ethical equitation I am amazed at the lack of robust scientific evidence available to support both sides of the bit Vs bitless debate that is rife amongst the horsey folks.

  9. Horse Talk
    Ok Guys, explain this one: Why do some people shave the whiskers from their horse? My chain of thought was this: Horses have prehensile lips, right? And I don't think they can see exactly what they are putting in their mouths. Don't whiskers have a purpose? Would shaving them not be somewhat...
