    It's not tied. The rope is put over her head and then ran through under the jowls an over her nose.

    That was her first time with a curb bit. She has a very soft mouth. Instead of being like most people with change I always prep her so she is expecting what's going on. I don't want her to be surprised.

    Okay - not something I've ever seen before. I'd worry about the stirrups bring flund around and an already sensitive mouth being bumped by the curb, making her more prone to avoid.
    She's very cute, must have been nice to see her in the "big girl bit" :)

    Horses learn to carry bits. It's no different than bitting a horse with a snaffle. With a curb bit its a different pressure. Hence the reason of prepping her on the ground. The best behaved horse could flip at a new pressure in their mouth. I would rather be on the ground than saddle. She learns to carry the bit and give to the pressure.

    I won't argue the point here as it is in the pictures section; but I do have an argument against the practice, especially with a curb bit tied to the movable part of a saddle - it could be dangerous, hence my bringing it up at all, and advise others to research the method before trying it themselves.

    I apperciate your concern. Considering a trainer is the one that decided this is what was needed and he's been training horses for 50 plus years I'm not too concerned. There is a reason for everything that is done. Whether it's been seen by others or not doesn't mean that it shouldn't be done by the right person in the right situation. Thank you for your concern though.

    It being a curb bit is no different than if it was a snaffle. Though with the wrong person doing such thing of course it could be dangerous along with many other things that are typically done.

    She looks gorgeous!! Feel free to send her off to "balmy ND" if you need miles put on her. I could use a ride. I'm tired of the cold and ready for spring!

    We've been having crazy weather. Warm and then cold. Last few days have been in the 50's almost even 60. I've been riding her as much as possible. This next month she'll be rode 5-6 days while I'm at the academy. After that I start days and I'll be able to ride after work. Can't wait, so nope no ND for her lol Thanks for the offer though.

    Please send some of that warmer weather to us. It's been in the 20's for the last 4-5 days. It's getting old.

    And I can understand not sending her this way. She's gorgeous and I'd never part with her either! I hope my Pandora grows up to be as beautiful as Sage one day!
