RE: [RC] Bitting for Control Question - heidi

This seems like a simple question, but how does a sidepull actually
operate? Is it a nose pressure device, nose + poll...?  Does it allow
for the same type of lateral flexion and poll flexion that can be
achieved with a snaffle?

I'd love to ride in something that works like a bit but doesn't put
something in their mouth.  I have a bitless bridle but had very
ambiguous results from the one horse on which I tried it.

Well, I asked my husband about his sidepull, and he says it is just nose
pressure and lateral flexion.  Nothing to do with the poll.

He also made the droll comment that "you don't need any of that hardware
until you've already taught them the WRONG things..."
