ButtInTheDirt- ah, I think you misunderstood me. I said that I would not be using the check rein, not the blinders. I absolutely plan on using my blinders. The only reason that I wanted them to be detatchable was because Sour is still in the early stages of training, and I want her to be comfortable with a normal bridle before I add blinders. I also wanted to be able to take them off to clean them, or replace them if they got damaged.
Churumbeque- xP yes, I have actually. In the photo though, they're still at 'package setting' with everything on the smallest hole. I felt like it was alright to go ahead and bridle her yesterday, and adjusted everything. It fit beautifully, and the noseband is right where it should be. The blinders DO turn inwards a bit, but with some adjusting I was able to fix that right up. She was not impressed with them, but didn't throw a fit or anything, so I'm happy.
If I remember right you're a large horse trainer, so I'm sure its hard for you to picture the bridle on a mini- but I assure you. They have some LARGE heads for their size. Or atleast ours do! Sour's head measures 30" from the corner of her mouth, around to the other corner, and she takes a 3 1/2" bit.
