I noticed in the Flemington gear changes that one of the horses has a "stallion chain on first time".
 
I have never taken too much notice of gear changes except for the main ones but I'm curious about what a stallion chain is, and how it will effect the horse.
 
Anyone able to provide some information?

Used in conjunction with a headcollar which is placed over the bridle prior to loading, it clips from the off side side of the HC, over the nose (a very sensitive area) then thru' on the near (handler) side, becoming a leather lead & is used to control the arrogant, pig headed ones. Removed once in the gates.

Check out some stud or stallion sights, they'll be plenty of examples Smile

Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!
