Does this product cause pain to my horse?
The horse will only feel pressure when it lowers its head preceding a buck. When the horse is not acting up, it will not know The BuckBuster is on.
Will my horse be able to eat and drink with The BuckBuster on?
It depends on how you adjust the saddle strap. More slack in the strap allows for your horse to lower its head before activating the product. To allow your horse to drink during trail rides, simply unloop the saddle strap from the horn.
Does it keep the horse’s head up?
No. The BuckBuster is designed to allow for the horse to lower its head, however, when it does, the squeezing pressure will begin. Thus encouraging the horse to keep its head from lowering to the bucking position but not to prevent it from lowering the head altogether.
Will it make my horse stop kicking?
Yes, if the horse lowers its head to kick.

Can The BuckBuster be used with a tie-down or hackamore?
Yes. The addition of a floating ring might be necessary.
Would it interfere with working my horse on cattle, roping, or trail riding?
No. Proper adjustment of the saddle strap allows for more or less lowering of the head before the product will activate.
Do I still need a bridle if I use The BuckBuster?
The Original BuckBuster is designed to work with the use of a bridle overtop.
However, If you purchase The BuckBuster Bridle, you will NOT need to use your own bridle overtop.
Can I still ride without the use of a Bit or Bridle?
