What are your views on using a pelham in hacking shows? IF and ONLY if the rider knows how to use it, so as to not hurt the horse unnecessarily?
And what bridle and bit do you think are best for XC when you need a little more control than your eggbutt snaffle?
Are bridles with grackle nosebands better for SJ and XC than a hanoverian?
Also, best boots to use for XC?
I already have:
Fleece lined open fronts (full)
Fleece lined fetlock boots (full)
Velcro fastening bell boots (full)
But I know that the open fronts don't offer enough protection for XC.. /:
Sports medicine boots? Are they the best way to go for XC protection?
Sorry for all the questions. I just like to be certain
