Bit vs Bitless

BIT VS. BITLESS TRAINING
When it comes to the welfare of the horse, riders and trainers do their best to ensure that the horse is not subject to pain under saddle. One of the most common debates is about training horses to be ridden with a bit and training them to be ridden without a bit. There are many advantages to both methods. For certain situations, a bit may be more efficient than not using one. In other situations, riding without a bit may be more comfortable to the horse than using a bit. It depends on the situation, the training level of the horse, the rider’s abilities, and the goals that you are trying to achieve with your horse as to which method will work best.

There's amazing excitement in the air when you have little ones that enter your life or that of your animal.  If you're caring for fouls, it's a very important part of raising horses and it's something you should know a lot about right from the start.

Just as the world begins to recover from ringing in 2017, South Africa is holding its largest horse racing festival, the 156th L'Ormarins Queen's Plate (LQP), at Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town, on January 6th and 7th (Friday and Saturday). Due to the festival's development and increasing popularity with both the local and international guests and personalities in recent years, this race will span across two days with an unmatched card of 18 races. L'Ormarins Queen's Plate will be the first racing event to become a multi-day event in South Africa. It is also poised to be the largest edition of this race to date. LQP is the highlight of Cape Town's social calendar and is South Africa's finest event to enjoy exquisite food, wine, and entertainment.
