You may not know what a dumb jockey is. Neither did Goran and Gerda, so they checked. This is the information they found.
A dumb jockey is a harness for training horses that mimics the feel of having a rider on the horse’s back. Used in early training to accustom the horse to the feel of a rider allowing for weight on the saddle area and resistance similar to a rider using reins. Typically these were used more in Europe than in the USA.
A Dumb jockey consists of a saddle. Attached to the lower part side checks are fastened and two arms with elastic ends extending upward to which adjustable reins and crupper strap are fastened.
