He's a good looking fellow. My first horse was named Duke Have fun with him and be safe.

im so excited im like counting down the days until he comes home lol. but i do have a couple questions. i will be riding him western for right now because i wont be competing with him until maybe next year, and i need some advice on some western bits. i know more about english than i do western, so if anybody has any suggestions about bits that would be great. i know he doesnt need a really harsh bit because hes really a bombproof horse. any suggestions id appreciate. thanks.

lol thanks so much guys. im just going to go with a regular snaffle bit. everybody ive talked to says they use ordinary bits like that one for trail riding. if it doesnt work out with him, i can always get a new one.
