True Unity by Tom Dorrance
One of Tom Dorrance’s guiding principles for explaining his understanding of the horse is that what he knows about the horse is what he learned from the horse. In this book, Tom shares his experiences and ideas to help achieve a true unity between human and horse. This book encourages readers to approach their horse with a feeling of acceptance for the value of the physical, mental, and innermost being of the horse. This would be a great book for any reader who wishes to build a better level of understanding between themselves and their horse.
Curb Strap with Flat Chain #CU10
Description: This Curb Strap with Flat Chain #CU10 is made of an 1/2 inch wide chain attached between two 1/2 inch burgundy latigo leather straps that are hand-edged, hand-rubbed and waxed. The curb can be attached to the bit with the chain flat or with the chain in a twisted position. The beveled buckles, chain and wire loops are all made of stainless steel. This curb is AQHA legal when attached with the chain in the flat position.
How it works: The flat chain gives a stronger signal on the chin when the reins are tightened than any of the leather curbs. If the chain is attached in the twisted position the signal becomes even stronger (but is then not legal in AQHA shows).
See my Tack Talk article “Curb Your Enthusiasm” to learn more about curb straps.
Steel Argentine Bit with Silver #A1
Description: The Steel Argentine Bit #A1 has 6 1/4 inch shanks. It’s made of high grade 4130 steel and overlaid with beautiful hand engraved nickel silver. Five steel mouthpieces are available and shown in the picture to the left. All are 5 1/8 inches wide and have inlaid copper strips to promote salivation except #42. Mouthpiece diameters are listed in the picture and dropdown.
Purpose: This is a nice mild shank and a good one to continue training with once your horse has advanced from the snaffle. It can often be used when a horse is having trouble or is resistant in a longer shanked bit and needs to come back to a milder bit with slower action for a time. This bit works well on many horses and is a great choice if you want one handy all-around bit in the tack room.
Shown with mouthpiece #2B.
