The Danish Equestrian Federation has adopted a new rule on the tightness of nosebands on horses in competition, how do they exactly control it and do you think it can solve excesses?

Great idea! I see a lot of riders that have trainers telling them to tighten their band so much. It only promotes hindrance and uncomfortable riding. There is no purpose for a super tight noseband.
Very good indeed. Restrictions are useful only for bad and hurried riders
I think it's a good idea because it shows how soft your horse is and it's mouth isn't just closed because of a really tight noseband
This rule based on a study that it reports "shows a clear correlation between tight nosebands and the presence of mouth lesions".
