Just to know if the rein with a curb can be confusing? Look at the mechanism of how a curb works as opposed to a snaffle, and you may be able to answer that too.
    As I was reading, I was wondering the same thing.

    As asking for the canter, I always ask with the opposite leg for the lead I want. If a rein is picked up, it's the rein on the direction of the lead to assist in lifting the shoulder to encourage a correct lead depart.

    If the curb has a broken mouthpiece, you can pick up and isolate the shoulder the same as you would with a snaffle. The contact is quicker and should be lighter.

    Thanks for your help everyone, I will update his progress week by week, and the curb does have a break in it so that sounds good!

    I didn't want to sound like I had all the answers, just wanted to use the process of elimination. Sorry it sounded that way

    It's all good, as long as you have a safe good ride and the horse is happy!

    Internet communication is frustrating.. a lot of assumptions are made because there is no way to clearly communicate the tone behind the words.
