Ok so I was wondering if any of you have used this before and what were your results? http://www.sstack.com/shopping/prod...=128&itemType=PRODUCT&RS=1&keyword=bumper+bit A girl that I used to be friends with took her horse to a trainer and were riding her mare in this bit. I have never used one. But a few weeks at the trainer and her mare was loping seriously slow and collected nicely, we were all standing around talking and the bit look similiar to this not exact but they called it a bumper bit. Instead of a shank it was just a long teardrop.(same length as the shank in the picture) I asked and her and him (her trainer) said it was THE miracle bit. OFCOURSE used properly. I would not go through this in my 2yr old mouth. I am aware of the severity of it. I am aware that it works by putting pressure on the jaw at the same time as the mouth. But how would that help slow her horse down this drastically? I would like to hear what you guys think about this bit. I called my trainer and he hasn't answered back yet but I would like to hear what you guys think or have heard.
