    [RC] bitless bridle's etc. - Irene M Burnett

    Great post, Kat;  You are absolutely right about a horse able to run with his head pulled around, and also that a "shoulder" in proves that a horse can, indeed, run with his legs crossing over.  I was actually talking about hindend displacement usually  being the way to get a horse stopped in an emergency.  You explained very clearly why using two reins equally, and pulling harder, is not effective to stop or slow a horse that has not been taught, or doesn't understand what the pull on his face means.  Thank you always for your great posts.  Renie
