Join Eclectic Horseman contributor Deb Bennett, Ph.D. for a discussion “everything you didn’t know you didn’t know about how the horse’s head functions,” because chewing, swallowing, and breathing are all directly impacted by the act of putting a bit into a horse’s mouth.


We will learn about the anatomy of bitting and a discussion of how bits work. Please read the article “The Magic Formula – You Don’t Need a Tiedown” from back issue No.58 as preparation. Link in order confirmation.
