Hello everyone! I am in desperate need of help!
My new horse ,Lucas, just arrived this past sunday and today was the second time I have every ridden him. He is so lovely and has the softest mouth ever!
But when I got off and removed his bit, I noticed some blood in the corners. On the left side, there is a small rub from the bit and it was slightly bloody!
I don't know what to do or what caused it! The bridle I used was not mine and I had to hastily adjust it myself. Can someone maybe tell me what causes bit rubs and what I can do to heal it and prevent it from getting worse.
Here's a picture of the bit I use:
And here is the bloody corner:
I know that it isnt all that bad, but I would really like to know what I can do about it! Can it be caused by the bridle being too tight or too loose? Is it caused by the bit being the wrong size? Please and thankyou!!!
