First, you tell us that he needs help from a double to straighten him. We tell you a double can't do that, it's for refinement. Then you tell us he's a schoolmaster and that it is for refinement. We ask why a schoolmaster can't go straight in a snaffle, and you tell us he's had the training, but he's an older boy who needs the double to help him get the right muscles to achieve the movements again in the snaffle. We tell you again that the double can't fix body issues, and say that if he's an older lad finding it hard why don't you take it easy on him, and give him an easier life with a bit of bute if needed. Then you tell us you bute him already when he's sore. We look at each other and shake our heads, wondering why the hell an older horse, who finds showing stressful and has obviously achieved these movements when younger but is now finding basic straightness difficult and is occasionally needing bute after a hard ride(something I never give to a horse I intend to ride, if they need bute to work they shouldn't be working in my opinion, light hacking at absolute maximum) is being put under the pressure of a double bridle!
And you wonder why I accuse you of contradicting yourself.
