Re: [RC] Bitless Contraversy - indiancp

if they want to bad enough they can!!  sometimes a strong bit makes the control problem even worse.
once bought  a horse no bit would control, he'd just bow that neck and charge on. really scarey thing as i don't think he even watched where he was bolting.  ended up fox hunting this horse with a soft rubber bar bit though and he was in perfect control.  i think it's all a matter of training and it "ain't" always easy.

Isn't true that if a horse wanted to/or felt he had to...could run through just about any bit?  I've heard of horses and mules (ever see a mule bit?)  pulling wagons and "run away".  A cowboy once told me that the bit was a "telephone" to tell the hold what we would like to do...not the brakes.  Otherwise the reins would be attached to the feet where the brakes are located!  Kinda made sense.
