    He is just gorgeous! I really think he wears hunter green well ;)

    Just a note for you and others.... please don't take this as a critique, it is more of a safety warning: Tying a bit to a saddle generally isn't advisable, if you want to do that I would really suggest looking at investing in some side reins that have some give to them. In addition, tying a curb bit to the saddle is really unsafe, and detrimental to training. Curb bits are meant to be used with really light touch, and with the reins tied like that it will teach him to actually evade the bit rather than working with it. He has no release from the pressure from the curb when you have it tied like that. Finally, tying to stirrups on an english saddle is really unsafe; the stirrups could work loose and then you have an even more dangerous bit/rein situation.
    If you want to use a side rein setup, I do suggest looking into a snaffle bit (keep in mind please that Tom Thumb bits are NOT snaffles), stretchy side reins, and attaching the side reins to the girth or billets instead of the stirrups.

    This is meant in the best way possible, and I don't want to make a discussion out of it. I do feel obligated to post when I see something dangerous, and I did message a mod about this before posting.

    The reins were on their for a picture or two. I used the draw reins after. The reins could be untied if he pulled enough so really not dangerous. He was in my round pen and only went around a few times. The reins are not long enough either to hit the ground if he untied them.

    Please just know that it is a very dangerous set-up, even for a couple minutes. I'm not critiquing, as I said, I am simply pointing out a dangerous situation as the forum allows.
    Please be aware that using draw reins with a curb bit is not advised at all; draw, side and any other major training device that acts on the bit should only ever be used with a snaffle bit.
