    My horse is a trail riding genius. I am so proud of him! Just a few months ago, I was afraid to ride "out"; but he has completely desensitized me. He is an absolute joy. <3 <3 <3 (But I don't...

    Why? How? What are the physics involved?

    I'm not considering a gag like this. But I would consider one like this. How does the bit sliding along the ring make the horse want to lift his...

    So, what exactly is the point of a baucher bit?

    I have this one. It occurred to me just today to put a curb strap on it and see if I could get any leverage. None whatsoever. No pressure from...

    My aged horse had this for some time. The vet was somehow able to insert a tiny straw into -- I have forgotten what! -- and he blew, and cleared the tear duct. That actually helped until the next...

    I don't exercise my little donkey. He's just too pitiful to drag around. He must have been roughed up in a previous life. He's super friendly and sweet. But so sensitive and careful. There no...

    I know. I'm not overlooking thre training and riding aspect.

    He's not bad enough to need an anti-grazing check rein. He's just bad enough that I can't ride him on a relaxed rein. He's very...

    My miniature donkey got absolutely obese on a netted round bale. He's doing better on less quantity, better quality, small, frequent meals.

    Explain this bit to me.

    Sweet Six bit. It's a western bit. Does the bit really, as the ad copy suggests, give the horse a snaffle cue first and the curb pressure only if he doesn't comply?

    Blech. That's just not kind. Sure, I'm sure she doesn't hurt the horse. But it's just not a kind gesture. It's not "partner-ish." It's not good faith. I think it reflects something in her heart...

    I'm not the OP, but I have my ears pricked because my horse leans on the bit like crazy, and I'm looking for a new bit too.

    He was never lunged in elastic side reins (to my knowledge, possibly...
