Category: Training Equipment
Purchase: I purchased this training tool new from HorseLovers.com for $48.99. I purchased it to help my horse correct himself so he could get the instant release from pressure he needs & to reward himself when he's doing something correctly.
Likes: I like the concept of the YoYo Headsetter but unfortunately it's so poorly designed that I didn't even get to try it out.
Dislikes: The construction of the product if very poor, it fell apart the 1st time it was used, and almost caused a very serious accident!
Quality: The leather portion of the Headsetter is made of soft durable leather, as is pretty much everything made by Schutz Bros., the rest of it is very poorly put together. I just received it today and was excited to try it out. I took it out of the box and put it on my 5 year old gelding loosely (enough so that it didn't restrict him at all) so he could get use to it as I lunged him. The lunging went well so I got on and did some trotting and loping around the arena. DOWNFALL...Mid lope the rope came un-tied from one of the clips that attaches to the bit leaving the rope fluttering thru the air like a streamer (still attached to the other side of the bit) and causing he long leather strap & bungie ring to crash down and bang around my horses legs and feet. With all this happening while at the lope...I must say we were both very lucky not to be seriously injured.
Summary: This is a potentially dangerous product...be cautious when using!
