How to see the perfect distance-Part One
know your bits!
Oh ffs. A tom thumb is not a snaffle. The proper definition of a SNAFFLE BIT is a NON-LEVERAGE bit. Therefore a tom thumb is not a snaffle.
Now, there are bits that can be used as both a snaffle bit AND a leverage bit (i.e. a pelham) but it is impossible to use a tom thumb without leverage being applied THEREFORE IT IS NOT A SNAFFLE.
that’s also not the only kind of hackamore; my boy has one that doesn’t look like that at all… haha welp.
Can I smack whoever made this considering ‘Double Rein Bit’ isn’t really a bit. It does have a name and there’s a lot other bits that use two sets of reins.
Dear god. the term “snaffle” has nothing to do with the mouth piece, but rather the cheek piece.. just because the mouthpiece is jointed doesn’t mean that the bit is a snaffle…this is so un-educational.
Also the mouth piece can be anything and still be classified as a snaffle: mullen mouth, single joint, double joint, waterford, french link, twisted wire, chainsaw, etc…. really.
from horse type to what kind of helmet is allowed in the hunter ring. Why can’t it just be about how good of a rider you are, and how well you ride your horse, and how fast and clean you can get through a jumper course? I’m tired of the snobbery if you don’t look just so, and your horse isn’t the right breed. I’m in this sport to ride well, not to look rich.
