She's my bosses horse, I just ride her. We have 25 altogether, we are a riding school. We have higher level (experienced,advanced) horses for me and the other students working through our BHS exams.
As she isn't mine, I have no say as to what she has in her mouth. She does go very well in this combination though. The flash isn't tight, it's just "there". I've always known her to be ridden in a Pelham so not sure how she would go in anything else... As I say, she's not mine so I don't have the option of exploring different bits.
She is very strong, and quite forward going. That's just her. You guys are right though, she is a great teacher. I enjoy jumping her and riding her on the flat. Unfortunately she cant hack out, but luckily she enjoys her time in the school.
