It is very important to make sure the bridle fits well enough that it cannot be rubbed off. With your guy's rock star mane, keep the bridle path trimmed. A lot of people are now using a strap of leather that goes from the throat latch to the nose band that keeps the bridle on, just a bit of added security. Also a full nose band is important to keep the bridle properly adjusted.

you can use any strap of material to make this to start.

The number one rule in driving:

Never take the bridle off while the horse is hitched to the vehicle.

Infraction of this rule can get you eliminated from competition and/or asked to leave the premises.

Does your pony know how to drive yet?

Nope my pony doesn't know anything about driving. He was ground driven once in his previous home where he turned around and attacked his trainer (I believe there was much more going on). So I don't know if this will be his thing, he does unmounted agility and has tons of fun with that. So if driving doesn't work for him that's OK. But I love to drive and I think with Clicker Training he'll learned to love driving too :)

I'm very careful about bridles! On the street my Belgian pulled his off once :O That was a panic, luckily he had a halter underneath and was tied. I'll look into those gullet straps. He'll have a whole new hair cut and fresh bridle path in a week or so

Thank you so much for all your help!
