I bought one a few months ago and I LOVE it!! My horse, who has mouth issues, is more content and happy. I like how I can use it to lunge too. The big thing I like about it is it seems to be more comfortable for him...I really believe the things about the nerves in the face...he doesn't rub his face on his legs anymore when we are done. I am a BELIEVER!!
So, I was always told that the throatlatch on a regular bridle when properly adjusted kept the bridle on the horse's head if you came off over his head. What holds this bridle on in the event you come off?
I scored one in the Dover basement at a very favorable price! I used it on a mare that always stuck her tongue out. The first ride she was clearly a bit unnerved when we started, but got used to it quite soon (I used it with her regular bit, a KK). As I rode her in it, she got better and better and her tongue stayed in her mouth more and more. Then she got laid off due to her pregnancy. I'm really looking forward to bringing her back to work in it.

How does it work for lunging? I like the way it fits the head- is is very adjustable? My mare has quite a dainty head. I've always felt that she's not quite comfortable in a normal bridle, even a comfort one.
