THAT'S RIGHT! NO BIT!
LET'S FACE IT! BITS CAN HURT! HOW COULD A HARD PIECE OF METAL RUBBING AROUND ON SOFT GUM TISSUE LAID OVER SENSITIVE BONE NOT HURT?
Trying to control the horse by creating pain or trying to give the horse the incentive of keeping himself out of pain by complying doesn't work. This picture here is the extreme version of not knowing how to have a relationship with a horse and just trying to control him physically. The horse's level of nervousness just increases or on the other extreme they shut down and numb out to deal with the painful apparatus.
The horse deals with the pain of raw cracked and rubbed corners of his mouth - even when someone is trying to use a simple "loose ring" snaffle- because most horses are not compliant enough and are not being ridden by a rider with quiet enough hands to not create pinching when the lip gets stuck between the ring and the ring hole. Then there are bits like this below which I'm sure feel awesome for the horse's sensitive mouth tissues-(sarcasm)
A little about my background:
I have ridden horses in all disciplines from dressage to jumping to competitive trail to beginning vaulting for the past 28 years- I have had a successful riding business in Malibu, California for the last 8 years both teaching riding students, training/exercising horses, and leading over 1000 Romantic Couples Trail Rides. I also happen to have a background in dentistry. I was a Registered Dental Assistant for over 10 years. I worked in every specialty of dentistry-General, Periodontal surgery, oral surgery, orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics and pedodontics. I have spoken to many many patients about what they are feeling and....
I am very clear what a human would do if they were not numb and you pushed a piece of metal into their gum tissue onto their jaw bone. THEY WOULD SLAP YOU!
The mouth is one of the most nerve filled and sensitive areas in the body. The pain is extremely sharp and radiates through your head.
ON THE FLIP SIDE:
I do understand that the bitless options that have been on the market have not been able to replace the bit UNTIL NOW!
FINALLY THERE IS A GREAT OPTION !
MADE IN GERMANY!
How it works: The design is very new and unique! When you pick up contact with the horse through the reins, the metal wheels on both sides rotate. This action puts leveraging pressure across the bridge of the horse's nose causing the energy of their forward momentum to be directed upward into the horse's core balancing the horse in movement. The horse is overall more calm without a piece of metal pressing into their gums. Horses are often non compliant if they are in pain. Is your horse ever non compliant? It could be pain in soft and hard tissues of the mouth and jaw.
The above pic is of an LG-Bridle with the Shank Set attached for more leverage
