Walt Woodard Bits

“I like the fact that it puts pressure on the side of his tongue and on top of his tongue, but it doesn’t hit the roof of his mouth. It gives me flex and bend but it doesn’t hit the roof of his mouth. That horse is not strong. We broke him and brought him along. In my collection, we start off with the D-ring or the O-ring, then we move right up the ladder. There were six steps before we got to the Smooth One by One.”
