So I'm about halfway done with my big-long post about bits.....Is there anything in specifics you guys would like me to talk about? I'm going over basics, action of bits, why you would use them, transitioning, etc etc.

My biggest issue is Gidget getting too hot before we go. I've done circles and that KINDA helps and I've walked her and trotted the pattern and I also don't do the pattern and just work on keeping calm. She walks sideways,does a baby rear,or spins around trying to go.

Also she pins her ears back. My friend said that she seems to not like it if she does that BUT she does that with everything besides trail rides as she is looking around and we are just walking. I've let her know that I have had her checked and she is getting checked again as her shots are due and we are checking her teeth. Is it bad when a horse pins it's ears back? I have a trainer now and I'm going to be taking my first lesson shortly so hopefully we can get to work and see about getting her more under control.

It's not bad all of the time for a horse to pin it's ears while running, Nikki does sometimes. It's just her "thing" I guess..I would just have Gidget checked again and probably work on the gate issue a little, BarrelLvr had a great post about working out gate issues. Just lots of walking in and out of the arena.. Or try to not do circles in the arena before you run, that just seems to irritate my horses and then they become used to it and whenever we go into an arena they think they have to spin around.. Just take her straight in, depending on which side you are turning, come in from that side and just straight in the arena.. Try to get her used to a cal forward motion.

Here is Nikki with her ears pinned, she's completely sound and no problems..She just pins her ears at times..Especially if I'm in her mouth too much.

Thanks! DR...I will have to do that. I am getting her checked out again this coming month since her shots are due and I'm going to have her teeth looked at to see if they need floated.

No,I don't. I used Dr. Everman. Dr. Bridges farm calls are horribly expensive to come out to Grants Pass.
