May I ask why you have the reins running through the bit and attached to the breastcollar?

Personal opinion, but this horse should be worked with softness or find whatever pain is causing her to throw her head, instead of covering it up with a tiedown/martingale.

Please, please don't do that...
1) Draw reins *must* be used by experienced hands only
2) Draw reins *must* be used IN CONJUNCTION WITH regular reins - NEVER ever ever alone
3) Draw reins should *NEVER* be used on a curb bit.. ever.

If you don't have the proper equipment, please *please* don't just "make due" with what you have - especially in such a manner..

she doesnt do it out of pain.. but she doesnt like it if u use the reins first then ask with leg... nd shes not ridden as often as she should.. she only threw her head if i did something wrong and it was my fault because she wasnt understanding what i was asking or if i was pulling on her insted of asking with my leg... over all tho shes realy awsome shes taught 4 year old kids to ride

It may not be a curb, but it looks shanked, which has the same leverage as a curb. We don't mean to hound ya', just worried about the comfort of the horse, because a comfortable horse is a comfortable rider.
