For Myler...just go to their website and get the phone# and call them...The Mylers' will personally answer the phone...pretty cool people. For other companies, I'm sure maybe you could do the same? It will be pretty pricey, but so worth it.

The person that deserves the credit for Myler getting into draft driving bits is actually Rose the owner of Big Horse Feed in Temecula.

I've checked that site out! May have to go to it sometime. I've heard you can get good horses at good deals (sometimes) at auctions. What do you think?

All you can do with the auctions is maybe take someone knowledgable with you and see. Go the few days they have before the auction and look at them handling/riding their animals too. Ask around if the people are reputable since some come year after year to sell their stock.

Here are some horses that would probably want to retire as your trail horse! That would be a vacation to them. Actually, I think these working horses have it in their blood...this must be why Big Mamma like to trample through anything...she must have been a logger...hahaha.
