No, no and no. |
No twisted wire snaffle. No tom thumb. No major curb with huge shanks. This horse needs SLOW work in the gentlest bit you can find.
The way that your going, your going to ruin this horse before he reaches 60 days.
Find a trainer and get help training this horse.
I always use a o-ring snaffle on a green horse no matter what, I was talking about after he was trained. I posted those pics because I inherited these bits and I don't know what there for, I was not planning on using them. However, one bit that I love, is the sweet water bit FOR A BROKE HORSE mind you. I was given one for my appy by a race horse trainer with 20+ track years and it worked wonders. This trainer also said he would help, being that he has tons of experience with hot horses. I also have a cousin that is big into the horse industry who gives me pointers. I also have successful basic trained (walk-trot-lope-side pass-roll overs-back- sliding stops) three 3-4 years old who have turned out to be great horses, they were not mine I did it for friends who did not have time. I also use Pat Parelli techniques, with some Clinton Anderson mixed in.
