New Bit

Hi guys this is my first post so sorry if I did something wrong but I have a question. My horse Redd just got a new bit and we ride saddleseat and is still getting used to it. Any suggestion on helping him get used to it or anything I can do?

Trail ride! Trail ride! Trail ride!

By this I mean do anything and everything that you would normally do in a calm and forgiving manner and also in any situation you would normally get into.
Do not rush it and try, if possible, to not to punish for little things the first few times it is a new bit so you may be asking your horse the same but it is going to feel different so do not get mad or over worked if he does not respond how you should the first time you ask him to.

Good Luck! :)

Double bridles take a little longer for a horse to get used to instead of just one bit. (I'm assuming that's what he's being ridden in?)

Go to the top left corner of your page and hit 'UserCp'
You should be able to figure it out from there.
