Lacey got a present today!

I got my bareback pad from GypsyTally921!

Lacey loved it. It was also super cushy for my butt and it made Lacey's previous pad-less couch-likeness even better. And, crazily enough, I measured Lacey for the girth that I bought with the pad and I determined that she needed a 24 inch one but I was worried that would be too big so I got a 22 inch one instead and guess what?? 22 inches is on the big side as well! My tiny little pony.

Pictures!





She also wanted to show off her bitless noseband thingy. It glows in the dark!

"Fo sho homes!"




And pictures from Tuesday when it was actually sunny:

"Hi mom!"



"Me sleepy giant, you little."



Sleepy pony



"GRASSSSSSSSSS!!!!" (her topline is looking really good here too, goodness. Go Lacey!)

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

The pad was $50 I believe. It would have been $40 but I didn't have a cinch that fits Lacey well so I decided to just get one that would fit her perfectly. I got to choose all the colors and the fabric. IMO it was a great deal for the price since most bareback pads seem to be in the $50-60 price range and you don't even get to choose the fabric. I'm really excited to use it more.

I bought the bitless bridle (actually, I bought the noseband and added it to a bridle I already had) on ebay for $10. On there it was called an Indian Hackamore. My only complaint with it is that it is very difficult to direct rein in. I'm sure if I worked with Lacey more only direct reining she'd figure it out eventually but she is definitely confused by that currently. It's awesome for neckreining and that's mostly what I do with Lacey (she behaves better the more I trust her, so having the reins loose and neckreining is a good trust thing) so it works for us. She actually sticks her nose into it for me sometimes which I interpret as a good sign. Haha I prefer it on Lacey, over a bit (she's fine being ridden in both), just because I feel like it forces me to trust her more and it forces her to pay attention better instead of just waiting for me to haul on her mouth to get her attention. She's also lighter on my hands in it (probably since I only neck rein in it) so I like that too.
I'd definitely say though that they are not for everyone and they are most definitely not for a untrained horse/one that's confused/just starting to neckrein. I finished Lacey's neckreining training in it but that's only after she had solidly picked up neckreining in a snaffle.
Don't worry about asking questions! That's the only way to learn! =)

I bought one for my daughters pony last year for $19.99 off ebay. I love it. It works great on him (but he's an easygoing pony)

Very, very cute looking. I'm glad you liked it. I remember posts about those pads and was wondering whether anyone got one.
