It appears that all of the Icelandic Horses in this exhibition are fighting the bit. Their heads are tossing and tipping at odd angles; their mouths and jaws are opening and twisting.
Has this become so common place in the Icelandic Horse world that it is acceptable as OK, or even "good" riding?!?!
What do these riders think when they see themselves and their horses?
Do they think that other horse people can't see the problems with the riding and the equipment?
