Horse Anatomy

Asked September 20, 2016, 2:41 PM EDT

We have just joined 4-H and are learning the outside anatomy of the horse for our 4-H project. In the 4-H literature the throat area is labeled the throat latch. I always thought the throat latch was part of the bridle, but that area of the horse is called the throat. Is throat latch correct? And I guess moving forward into any 4-H contest we should follow the labeling from what we are given to study to get a correct score, correct?
