A Pain in the Mouth of the Icelandic Horse

Sometimes the style of riding of the Icelandic Horse and the quest for speed and ribbons negatively affects the mouth of the Icelandic Horse.

This is a natural horse and if trained with natural horsemanship, bits aren't necessary!

In this video, we see all sorts of abusive treatment of the Icelandic Horse.  Equipment that doesn't fit, and equipment that should not be used, as well as hands that are harsh and uneducated.
