I absolutely love it! Looks great on my boy, Freddy, and he is taking a shine to it as well. I really love the feel of it, we can get much softer trots and cantering with it, and I like the little extra lead rope part to help me ask my boy to walk when all my other cues aren't working, I can spank myself with the end of the lead part and he responds nicely. I love being able to ride casual and one reign and this is perfect to help me with more finesse riding and trail. No arguments from him with it on. Happy horse, happy human, happy customer here!
