We can all agree that horses are some of the most beautiful animals in the world, there is no doubt about that. You simply have to see one in real life and you can tell that it is hard to find something else that does compete with this unique beauty. During history, the same as humans, the evolution of horses has caused a lot of changes in a horse’s body structure until recent days yet, they have been the most important animals who have contributed a lot to the development of our society, especially when we speak about transport when for a long period of time, horses were the main mean of transportation.
By analyzing a horse’s body structure, we can understand a lot from them as you can see in the video below. Daniel Dauphin explains some of the meaningful points of the anatomy of a horse’s head. The different parts of a horse’s body have a very important role and all riders need to know the importance of each and every one of them in order to ride or even take care of a horse in a proper way.
However, one thing that I wanted to point out is whether we should use bits with a horse or not. Many people that ride with bits believe that it is not possible to control a horse unless you use bits but I strongly believe that it is a matter of training rather than using bits which can be harmful to a horse as well. It is not a way to stop a horse.
Your horse is most likely to stop if you teach it how to do it. It is a matter of teaching proper manners rather than using bits which, in a lot of cases are incentives for aggressive behaviors. I would like to hear your opinion regarding this point as well but as for me, I’d rather ride a horse without using bits.
Regarding the video, I do believe that it is very informative and Daniel Dauphin made an incredible job with it. Please have a look and let us know what you think. If you believe that the video will be informative to someone else, make sure to share it with them.
