Description: Different breeds disciplines of riding and stages of training have varying standards on how the horse should carry his head. Conformation of the horse and how the neck is set on the shoulder also plays an important role on how a horse can carry his head. The rings on the side are used to run the reins from the bit through the rings to the hand. This gives leverage to set the horse’s head and the level of the rings that are used determine the placement of the head…the lower the rings used the lower and more flexed the head will be. This training tool eliminates the need to buy a piece of equipment for each need or horse and is recommended for both english and western riders.
