RE: [RC] Vosals - Jim Holland

I tried one…..heavy and if your horse is pulling on you, it rubs the hair off the jaws….very rough there.  I hated it and so did my horses.  I think Sporttack sells them….at least that’s where I got mine.

The concept is that the hinged pieces of metal toward the back of the Vosal act as a pincher on the jawbone.  There's where the control comes from.  I've never tried one, but have been tempted a couple of times.  I think if one pulled too hard, the control might be a bit severe, but as I haven't used one, ever, I may not know.  In some ways, it looks like it might act much as an old-time Spanish jaquima, with the rawhide bosal and the horsehair reins.

I was thinking of switching from an s-hack to a vosal. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how well they work? I am not 100% clear on the concept of the vosal. Or where to get them? I can't find very many online.

Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
