Smile My horse is foaming at the mouth :D

That is all, really. She started out a few months ago with her jaw set against the bit all the time, and stiff in the neck and shoulder. We've started working on getting her on the bit lately, and she practically did it by herself today(!!). When I got off, I saw her mouth was foamy, and I had to share. I feel like this is a big deal for us!

PS: She hates cameras. Pins her ears at it every time. I swear she doesn't always have such a miserable expression.

I like that it is softly dripping toward the jaw, not down the lips. Means she is lightly ifv, and that is not huge amounts of whipped cream.

Excellent! Like equitate said, it is great to see that she is starting to rock 'lipstick' and not the great blobs of shaving cream that some horses get as a result of tension.

Ah! Lucky! Candy always did that for me, but diddly just WILL NOT! He's always got utterly dry lips.

I know the feeling, congratz! It took us ages too. Normally Teddy would pick up the bit, and that was it. He was never active with it. Now even after a walk in the forest you can see that he had been chewing it. And after a training session at home, he gets plenty of foam on his mouth. Makes me very very happy, so we can start making a little club for those whose horses have started to become softer :)
