Will it hurt my horse?

The two most important things to us are safety and comfort, for horse and rider alike. When used as per the instructions, your horse will not experience any discomfort. It is suggested that the horse and rider are the proper ratio to each other. As with all equine activities, it is also important to allow each horse individually, the time they need to get to know any new sensation.
