    It just makes me personally shudder, we were never allowed to do more than a collected trot on hardtop, couldn't let them out into a real fast trot because of the concussion, and certainly NEVER allowed to go faster.

    That is the proper thing to do GH, I would never dream of doing such a thing now.

    He looks good in english tack. If you stay in it, don't forget to take that curb chain off the bit. If you are not hauling on the reins, it serves no purpose anyway.

    Normally I canter in grass on the side of the road, but it was so grown up that e decided to get on the road for a few to get a least a few good pictures. Usually, I dn't like to go above a fast trot n the actal road, and ride in the grass.

    And thanks guys. As for the curb chain, I use one on all my snaffle bits, just as a precaution, in case I have to do a one-rein stop or something like that, and it's to keep the bit from being tugged through the horses mouth.

    I'm just a trail-rider, so stuff like curb chains on a snaffle really don't matter.

    It looks like you may need to slide the saddle back an inch or two for best fit,



    If you look at this pic you can see how his shoulder is slightly hidden by the knee roll of the saddle. If you slide back just a little it will free up his shoulder and you may find he has even more reach.
