Wondering if anyone has actual experience using of these nosebands. I have heard they are very good for especially 'strong' horses (I have lots of experience with that particular 'breed' ), and thinking this may be something worth a try. Would be interested in your experiences if you have tried it! I am usually a bit wary of these "new-fangled" things, but have found that sometimes they do actually work. Not something I would use everyday, but more for specific circumstances, when the horse in question is typically more difficult to control. She is a wonderful mare, but really big, and very strong, especially over fences cross-country when she gets 'excited.'
