    Clinicians also teach to an audience, so to speak. I imagine the focus of the EAP to be very equitation-based, so if you don't have a typey...

    One of mine was a nightmare in regular snaffles, mullen mouth, french link, etc. I had a port in my box so I tried it on her, and she loves it, go figure. Never what I would have thought would work....

    If it makes you feel any better, when I rode with Greg Best, he said that he's come across more than a couple mares that throw tantrums. He likened it to her saying "I...
