    As I have said many times (and been screamed at, LOL), a noseband properly sized and adjusted results in less rein pressure, and some nosebands (flash, dropped, kineton) keep the bit more stable in the mouth.

    A nose band and lip strap stabilize the bit. We have a sensitive one that also wears a baucher that even adds more stability.

    I have experienced it. In fact, I really hate riding a horse without a noseband because of it.

    No no no no no no no no NO. You weren't screamed at. You were asked - many times - to EXPLAIN the dynamics around how that works, or provide articles/evidence. In which you had no reply to.
