Rhythm Beads are not new to the horse scene. The Native Americans would adorn their horses with beads, shells, feathers, etc. It was believed that these adornments held great powers that would keep a horse and his rider safe during times of danger as well as assisting them in moving as one. The various decorations placed on a horse during those early days would also show a tribe member's rank in the tribe. The beads, shells, feathers, etc. did not come easy ~ they had to be earned! The beauty of these horse and rider teams is undeniable!
In more modern times, the gaming horse has shown lots of benefits from wearing his Rhythm Beads. Besides the above listed calming effects, a lot of barrel racers have sworn that while wearing their Rhythm Beads their horse seems to be much more focused ~ and even pushes himself to a bit faster pace! Everyone who follows barrel racing knows the importance of getting that extra second knocked off of your time! Plus, you are sure to become the crowd favorite as all eyes are drawn to the horse with the beautiful "necklace"! Now, who wouldn't love that kind of attention. I know my horse loves to ham it up ~ and I bet yours does too!
There is another tremendous benefit to using your Rhythm Beads if you are a trail rider. The soft jingle of the bells will provide just enough noise to announce your arrival to the local critters. No more surprises ~ And one less reason for your horse to be tense and on edge! Trail riding should be fun for both horse and rider ~ and Rhythm Beads help to ensure that everyone has a good time!
There are 4 medium sized jingle bells along the sides ~ 2 that will sit on the shoulder area on each side, as well as one larger jingle bell in the center of the chest area. This placement allows for the light melody that is produced with the movement of the various muscles.
As with all of our Rhythm Beads, there will be a clip attached to the top so you can attach them to a small amount of mane hair to keep your Rhythm Beads from slipping should your horse decide to enjoy a blade of grass or a drink of water.
You should always give your horse a chance to become acquainted with Rhythm Beads just like you would with any other new piece of tack. It is recommended that you connect the Rhythm Beads to your horse's mane with the attached clip to keep the beads from slipping down if your horse should lower his head for a drink or snack. This will help prevent an accident and the possibility that your Rhythm Beads will get stepped on and broken.
It is not recommended to leave Rhythm Beads, or any other piece of tack, on an unattended horse. Please keep yours and horse's safety in mind first.
