Best to put it to babelfish translation. This seems to be a dutch invention to protect the horse from damage from the bit.

Jeese... now that we have that cleared up finally (horses have damage from bits) why just not leave the bit were it belongs as far as I am concered; in the museum? :funny:

Who said that humans make live as difficult and not logical as possible.... :roll:

It's hard to believe that this is serious - it's not a spoof is it???

If this is serious...
it's only proof of how people fear to let go of the control of the bit.
Instead of dealing with their fear, the deal with the symptoms of the problem, not even the problem itself.

And it costs only a mere 750 eur :roll: :roll: :roll:

It gives me the feeling it looks like my teeth protection I need to use when I sleep to avoid grinding my teeth too much.
It took me a while to get used to that too...
Maybe I can also put a bit in now??? :funny:

:roll: :sad:

It looks like the gum-guards that are used in boxing or karate. That makes me wonder - does it also have to be dropped in boiling water and softened and then held in the mouth for a few seconds with teeth clenched to get the fit just right? How on earth is that going to be done? I do know that guards like this are not at all comfortable unless they are custom-fitted.

Oh dear, poor horses ... :sad:

That was exactly what I thought of Glen. Oh well, at least people are trying to make horses more comfy right? :roll: :funny:

Plus once you've acknowledged that a bit causes discomfort, it's hard to back-pedal, innit? :roll:
