It is always nice to see a horse get a second chance in life.

You have done well with her
    03-28-2009, 05:34 PM
Yeah wow awesome progress! Any reason for the super-harsh hackamore?! That looks wicked!
    03-28-2009, 07:05 PM
Its just a normal hackamore.. I just bought it so I have not wrapped it yet... I don't really use bits unless I have to... she's as quiet as they come undersaddle. DEAD broke horse.. lol.. she has such a personality though.. she's a doll..

You have really done well with her. As for going bitless, have you considered getting a bosal or just riding in a halter? Those would be much nicer than a mechanical hack.
    03-28-2009, 07:22 PM
That hackmore is not mild by any means .. if she is that broke look into a nice rope bosal or much shorter shanked hack ;)

Good job with her so far...

Agreed with the above re: the hackamore - many of them can be far harsher than a bit. I love the idea of a bosal or something similar for her that is softer.

She looks like she's gained a ton of weight - awesome job!

You know, i've heard people tell me that you cannot put substancial weight on a horse in less than 3 months e.e; and they aren't referring to thoroughly starved horses... they're referring to ones that were as thin as the mare you posted. This just goes to show what HALF a month of proper feed and care can do for a horse!

Bravo! Thank you for rescuing her! She is beautiful! Good job on getting so much weight on her!

Are you riding her already? She looks awfully thin to ride.
