I think sidepulls are wonderful. Marilyn Horstmeyer (Desoto Tack) made me
a biothane one, and I have two leather ones and a nylon one! Make sure you
get one that has a rather hard nose, like rawhide, or you will have no
control! Set them like you would a cavason on an English bridle, in other
words, the ole two fingers below the cheekbone. Mine are all
different..some give more control than others. The nylon one has a soft
nylon nose and is the same as a halter, little to no control. The leather
ones, with double braided rawhide noses, give the most control. The horses
love them. I often change to a sidepull after my stallion settles down
halfway through a ride because he drinks so much better in one. The other
horses can use them throughout.
