De manera general describe los tipos de Bocados y su historia, NO es para que aprendas a detalle c mo se usan y qu efectos provoca cada uno de ellos Un buen libro definitivamente bien estructurado y muy interesante para entender que para un caballo bien arrendado los bocados funcionan como apoyos y no como control total.
This is a great book for how to pick out a bit that is made well I do like the way that she emphases that the bit is only a small picture in a horse and rider relationship Buying a new bit will not solve all of your behavior issues, but it can change the direction of your conversation.
However, her analysis for how bits work needs a lot of work itself As a mechanical engineer and western horse trainer I had a very hard time getting through this section She does not have an understanding of how the various leverage bits or gag bits work Instead she offers up common misconceptions as fact Unfortunately I see this section as the main part of the book If you are looking for a book that will actually help you understand how bits work check out The Complete Book of Bits and Bitting by Elwyn Hartley Edwards He has a very good understanding of the mechanics of how they work with great illustrations to go with it.
Excellent book Before this book I ve questioned, why so many bits and which is the best one I am starting my first horse soon and wanted to make the right decision in choosing the right bit but, starting her off bitless first I am very critical to the books I read and this book was a wealth of knowledge in providing me a better understanding between Western and English bits The author was very thorough in her research in explaining the pros and cons of each bit.


I work for Alberta Carriage Supply and we sell harness and driving accessories for all sizes of horses Bits are an accessory that we carry and although I have my personal favourite, I felt that I should hop on the learning curve and get informed about the Science behind bitting and some of the terminology used when talking about bits I m only part way through the book but already it has surpassed my expectations As far as I m concerned, a lot of horses would be better off if their riders drivers read this book Do your horse and yourself a favour Buy and read this book, you won t be disappointed.
Makes it easy to find and differentiate between all the bits out there.
