This is a very old thread! Hmmm I guess while I'm here I will give an update.
So I have owned her for 5 months now, we just stuck to ground work for most of it. I finally got back on YAY!! We had our 6th ride together yesterday, I fell off on our 5th ride but I hopped back on and kept going with it. We havent gone any faster then a walk and we have had one ride out of the round yard.
She is still fighting the bit alot. She is in one of these http://www.tds-saddlers.com/ProductImages/18151.JPG
. Do you think I should change it to a O ring snaffle or a D ring or just leave her with the Tom Thumb?
