Why is he being ridden in a double bridle? A 4 y o advertised to have been "given time to mature and brought along slowly" and "started in lateral work, shoulder-in, FLYING CHANGES..."???? In a double?? A 4 year old??

Yeah I do question this.

He does look pretty nice. I hope he passes your vet check and becomes yours.

Thanks guys.
I agree with you Weezilla. But I have never had a double bridle, and never will. Nor will I ever be performing shoulder in and flying changes.
When I saw him yesterday he was in a snaffle with no martingale, and the very simplest of equipment. That suited me just fine, and he will always have the simple tack if I buy him :)

I'm absolutely gutted.
Diddly has been sold. And not to me. I had first refusal, but someone else came to see him today and bought him on the spot.
I am heartbroken. He was perfect.

Been there... Sure does suck.

I found what I was looking for, he was perfect and I liked him sooo much. I rode him, thought about him for the hour ride home, called the seller and told her I wanted him and I could pick him up at such a date and time. Seller was thrilled.

Then a day later I get a call saying someone showed up with cash and a trailer...

It felt like someone ripped my guts out... I'm an adult though so I suck it up moved on and kept looking. Found an even better horse for a better price.

Aww CC, so sorry to hear this. Never mind. Such a lot of really nice horses in the UK. There will be another waiting for you somewhere and he's already got your name on him!
