Gag Bitdentures with gag
Using gag bits properly
You have probably seen gag pieces on horseback cantering across the countryside, and perhaps someone has proposed that you try one on your own one. Let me tell you how a gag works and give you advice on how to make sure it works for your mare. I' ve used jokes on most of my ponies for most of my careers - I'm a little bit of a man, so I don't have the inherent lever that a 6-foot-high man does when he gallops very large, fitting aman.
Reinforcing the reins that I use to strengthen my legs, seats and eyes, a gag bit gives me a degree of controllability that allows me to concentrate on the detail of the riding, rather than trying to balance my horses in front of each rail. However, these do not work on every single bit, as they do not work on every single equestrian.
In order to use a gag securely and efficiently, you must already be able to grasp the idea of your horse's ride from your sit and legs to your palm and be able to use your palms easily - a gag is too strict for a clumsy horseman. When you have to trust your own palms, a gag is not right for you.
It is hard to use a reins, let alone a gag and a reins when your arms hold your bodies up! In order to be effective with a gag fence, you need a balance that you can loosen up or intensify according to your off-road pace and the question you are asked.
In the ideal case you usually want to get off your bridle by only increasing the gag force when your mare becomes stronger. However, since two reigns can be a little bit bewildering, many individuals use toggles with only one reign, which are fastened to the toggle cheeks. This means that it is not possible to use the bit as a normal bridle, so anyone who does so must be a good horseman who is not hanging on his horse's jaw - and the survey - while galloping.
If you are a beginner, gag bites are not taboo as long as you have an experienced trainer. With the gag she has more controllability, which allows her to be more even, laid-back and soft in the hand. Riders can focus more on horseback rather than overcoming a powerful stallion, and the two are luckier together.
