One of the most important discoveries of man was the use of the horse. In various parts of the world, man first used the horse for food and used his hide for clothing...and then tied him to burdens to be dragged.
However, it was the invention of the bit that made the horse the great tool of man.
First man used horses for his chariots, then men riding horse back brought order to civilization out of chaos.
From the time of the Sumerian chariots, sixty centuries ago, until the coming of the railroad, the horse was man's land transportation.
Not only was the bit a necessity in making the horse play an important role in the practical affairs of government, warfare, and transport, it was also essential in making the horse play a leading part in the refinements of country life.
