What are your thoughts on drop nosebands?

What are your thoughts on drop nosebands?

Before you consider getting one, look at the skeletal anatomy of a horses head. I would never use a drop noseband personally because of how thin and fragile the bones are in that region of the face---I am way to paranoid about how much damage could potentially be caused, even if you're the most careful person in the world. That's just me personally :)
I would never be able to put a drop noseband on my horse to any degree of snuggness without decreasing the ability of air to pass through the nostrils. I do not know why people think they are better than a flash. I don't think they are, and they are ugly. On a horse you would be squeezing the cartilage if you put a drop noseband on there. Anyway, these are only my thoughts. Have a good day! ; )
