Argentine Bits for HorsesBits for Argentine horses
The mouths of each of the horses are slightly differently formed, and these light changes affect the chins, sticks and limbs to some extent. Something that works conveniently for one person can be ineffectual and almost hurtful for another - poke, pinch or rub. Not only does this lead to an unfortunate and potentially ill health but it also reduces your capacity to talk to him about your reins - whether you are in the show ring, in the training stick or on your way.
Perpetrator: With a shaft bite, this issue is caused by the way the chinstrap is attached to the bite and the chinstrap and the belt work together. If the reins are pressurized, the chinstrap will clamp the edges of the horse's jaw between the straps and the nose piece.
If the chinstrap is placed in this area, the chinstrap clasp may cause further bruising. Consistent use in connection with rough palms can cause wounds or even tears in the corner of the horse's jaw. The response of the horse: When you use this kind of bit/chinstrap assembly and find that when you press reins, your horses heads up, pinch is probably the cause.
Your horse's uncomfortable state will keep you from interacting with your pet because he will always try to avoid the teeth in order to avoid the pains. Drivers often blame throwing the ball at the wheel for poor behaviour and aggravate the situation with harder reins or a tie-down. Perform an initial compression test by placing your chisel around the die with your hands while applying force to the shafts.
When the chinstrap on the chinstrap of the nose piece fastens more than appears correct in relation to the force you exerted on the shafts, this could be a problem. You may not know if this piece pinches your horse's mouth until you try it on him.
When you are already using this denture on your saddle, try to tighten the chinstrap a little so that the chinstrap does not stick so low in its jaw. For a tighter fitting, the belt does not stick as closely to the nose piece as on very light horses, and in some horses it raises the thighs so far up and away from the corner of the jaws that squeezing is impossible.
Or if the denture has a brief buy (the part of the denture that stretches from the nose to where it is attached to the jaw of the bridle), try a longer buy denture. Buying too little for the length of the horse's jaws can cause the chinstrap to be placed too near the nose section, which can lead to bruising.
It is also possible to try a piece with built-in drop-back curb loop which positions the chinstrap further back and away from the nose piece and the edges of the horse's muzzle. Perpetrator: If you use a rotary shaft chisel or other kind of articulated chisel and the hinge on the sides of the chisel where it is connected to the shafts or the articulation on the chisel is too relaxed, the corner of your horse's mouth may become trapped and jammed.
Too much clearance hinged and articulated parts are usually found in low-cost, inferior bits. High-grade bits are usually produced with flatter and denser hinge. The horse's reaction: Clamping through floating hinge on the sides of the nose piece is similar to clamping between the chinstrap and the nose piece in problem #1.
When there is too much clearance in the hinge on the mouth piece, a horse's reed can also be trapped. His answer is again to shake his skull in an attempt to prevent the inconvenience this entrapment causes. Do not be satisfied with inferior bits. Just having a few well-made bits in the saddle room is better than having a brick face clad with inexpensive, useless bits.
When your stallion generally performs well in this kind of dentition, you should consider investing in one with a similar look but better build. For example, a simple but well-made ring bridle would be better, as the bands go through the sleeve and are attached to the nose piece. This sleeve protects the corner of a horse's lips from excessive movement in the hinge and prevents possible squeezing.
Or you can put a protective elastic band on the mouth piece where it is connected to the shafts. This protection device protects a horse's cheek and lip from disturbances or bruising due to loosened hinges. Perpetrator: Many horsemen use a fractured mouth piece when they move a steed from a simple bridle to a kerbbite.
But I think your stallion is still in practice when you use him as a transition chisel. This means that you are probably still going to ride him with two arms and ask him to draw his right or wrong one.
If you think your stallion is ready, but sometimes use a straight reins to keep his mind bent around in the training enclosure or on the track, this will cause trouble. For example, suppose you use a right bridle to ask your mare to come to the right.
Pulling the right reins out of the hips to the right causes the metallic part of the shaft that holds the teeth to the bridles to push the right side of your horse's cheeks through the combination of the shafts and the fraction. The response of the horse: Whenever you use a straight reins with these teeth, you will at the same moment put your horse's cheeks on the same side.
In the expectation that he will immediately be thrust into the cheeks, your mare could turn his neck with the feeling of your reins. Or, he could begin to throw his brains as soon as you want to escape the pressures, or even planted his feet and refused to move forward or backward.
If you keep giving your horses these blended signals, there may be a number of behavioural issues that can lead to a downwards spiralling misunderstanding. In the course of the years, wounds, alopecia and scar formation can occur on your horse's cheek. Unless you have a basic idea of how different set of teeth design affects your horse's jaws, go back to basic principles and consult a coach or Bit-Profi.
Fractured mouthpieces do not necessarily make a bridle; a real bridle has no lever effect because it has no legs. When you put two pound on your rein while using an genuine bridle dentures, your mare will sense two pound stress, dots. Applying the same two pound to a shaft will increase your horse's overall feeling of weight due to the lever action generated by the legs.
This set of teeth may help you - if you never want to ask your horses to bow their heads to the right or both! Of course I suggest to change the bits, as this style will lead to inevitable issues. Drivers often use it because they wrongly believe it is a gentle, temporary piece because it is a fractured muzzle.
Or unfortunately, teeth and bridles were part of the parcel when they purchased the steed.
