    • Reduce the dependence on your reins - allows you to ride your horse from the front to the back, your horse will be able to move forward and less likely to challenge you
    • Mouth problems - how many times have you tried to find the right bit for you horse? it can be a minefield - too strong and your horse will resist and become tenes. We want your horse to be relaxed and trust you
