    How do you know when you are ready?

    How do you know when you and your horse are ready to move up to using a double bridle for refinement?

    Not saying I am just asking as a question because I will in no way be using one just curious

    Thanks in advance

    When BOTH my trainers told me horse and I were both ready we started introducing the double.

    My pat answer is:
    1.) When rider uses LITTLE rein and more seat to influence horse
    2.) When rider can use X without inadvertantly using Z - in other words when you have an independent seat and hands.
    3.) When horse/rider combination score above 60% at Third Level in a recognized show.

    Thank you very much for such a quick reply to my thread the main reason I am asking this is because my friend uses a pelham and she says she is using it for refinement but I didn't think she was ready for it when she first put it on her horse and now her horse is in a false head set all the time and that added with this information has made me believe that she is diffenately not ready to be ready in this bit.
