    While the bridle itself may have practical applications for some horses in some circumstances, its designer has been discredited on other threads for his "training" ideas.

    It's not a design I would use.

    I can say "NO"!

    It sounds like a bargain to me… bidding war about to ensue?

    For a limited time, maybe it will include the Spirit "Yolk"

    I'd like to see the inventor of it execute a canter zig zag and jump a basic 3' hunter course.


    Then we'll talk.

    Maybe you should put up an advertisement for your "spirit butt"!

    Its basically the same as the Dr. Cook's bridle.

    I think each accuses the other of stealing the idea for the thing though.

    I wish I had a video of my Spirit Butt. We did a charter boat trip in the BVI last Spring, along with 5 other fun peeps, back when that silly song "I'm on a boat" was a hit. One night in White Bay, whist full of...Spirits...my white fanny got up there on the front of our boat and By Golly shook my moneymaker while the song played-not just for a few seconds...but the WHOLE song. All of it. Work it, Kat.

    How embarrassing to wake up the next day and think, you know, I think I shook it like a Polaroid picture, like I'm any good at it, for quite some time. aye aye aye...

    That's my story of a Spirit Butt

    And it comes with a Spirit Yolk too, which makes your eggs speak in tongues.

    I think that RAyers has a picture of himself with the Spirit Butt halo option.

    And both of those are slightly reworked versions of the "Be Nice" halter...

    Hey - if you can't use a bit, why not squeeze the snot out of your horse's head ?

    And this...

    5. Does Spirit Bridle have stopping capability? Yes, the Spirit Bridle stops a horse. It is so efficient that it is recognized for horse racing. To stop a horse who is trying to run off, the rider needs only to shake the head and then hold. Usually it takes only two or three such actions to stop the horse. With Spirit Bridle, the rider is actually braking the horse from the hindquarter.

    Shake the head? Like grabbing somebody by the shoulders and shaking some sense into them? "Horse, get ahold of yerself, ah said WHOA!!"

    And the hindquarters brake... is that like an E-brake?

    Wow, this must be some bridle...
