Bella was being a tad difficult today, so she isn't normally pulling on the bit so much and or keeping her head that high, but she worked hard yesterday and was fantastic so I forgive her for being difficult today lol...anyway, this isn't me riding, it's a girl who leases the bay other bay horse in the ring(which is who i'm on, we like to switch horses sometimes lol) Bella does really well for Alexa and I like watching them work together
Alexa said she wouldn't mind critique but this is mostly for Bella. I normally ride her in THIS bit But when we started working with her she wasn't stopping very well at all so my riding instructor started using a D-ring low port with a curb chain. When we first used it it helped a lot with her pulling her head down(and throwing it up), but as you can see in the video she was doing it quite a bit today. She was actually doing much better by the time we videoed her, when I was on her I practically couldn't keep her head up.
