Yes Deb, we too wear out chambons here with lots of use!! I use them to bring horses back into work from a spell, 6 weeks before we ride them.
The breakers I find want to put their heads down and have a bit of a go sometimes and can panic with the chambon. To strenghten their backs I do a lot of lateral work with the longreins, seems to do the trick.
