    I'm so jealous!!!!

    I'm not an english rider, but may I ask what the strap around Caliegh's front legs are for in the 3rd ride pictures?

    I was instructed by the owner to try draw reins on her during this ride to see if it would help me out since she is so heavy on the bit. Before a giant argument breaks out about how cruel I am I just wanted to state that I was merely trying them.

    I am looking into other ideas on how to get her off the bit as well, just experimenting really. I don't think I will use the draw reins again because I am not experienced enough with them to use them as they should be used. I get to nervous using them to be truly effective.

    They are very different to ride in. A day in draw reins will correct her for the rest of the next week or two. Once you get more used to her movement it's easier to get her on the bit without them. It's a good tool for her once in a while no matter how controversial it is. My trainer told me to try them and she's been riding for 30 years and couldn't get her in a headset with seat alone. Caleigh is a very big stubborn girl when she wants to be. Now that I know what to feel for it's a lot easier to get her on the bit without the draw reins.

    Oh, I see. Well, I don't know enough about them to knock you for using them (I just found out what they were )

    You're so lucky for getting to ride Caliegh!

    Tools used for the right purpose in the right hands are just that...tools, not torture devices. Don't worry about controversy.

    OTH, She is BEAUTIFUL! How tall is she?
