I like it a lot. It has helped me with my hands, I tend to be rough sometimes. So this helps a lot. It also is forcing me to use my legs and stomach to direct since there is no neck reining at all. It's really easy to put on too. When/if I get horses I want to use only bosal bridles. :D
Thanks for the welcome :) Our Shires are such a hoot - we just love them. Ours aren't as big as some (17.1 and 17.3 hands) but that's fine with me and I'll be riding 5 year old regularly as soon as we get some decent weather up here.
Thanks, Jackie! After riding for at least 4 hours a day, 5 or 6 (sometimes 7) days a week for most of my adult life (18- nearly 60) plus all the hours I rode as a kid, I have definitely put in a lot of miles in the saddle.
