Having just moved my horse to do more trail riding I thought I might treat him (and me) to a new bridle, one that will make it easier for me to put on when he gets over excited.
So I was looking at this one:
Dlx. Endurance Bridle Only by Zilco
I know it's an endurance bridle and we would only really be doing short/day rides at first but I like that fact it doesn't have a nose band, also I think it can be used over a rope halter and also, if i'm reading right, can be clipped onto a halter underneath.
With Phoenix going from halter to bridle can be a challenge if he's worked up, if I take his halter off he tends to walk off and getting a bridle on can be hard work. So I figured if I could just put this over a halter it would be easier.
Does anyone have something like this?
I also wanted to get a new bit, a friend recommended this:
Right now he's in a french link snaffle but I did watch a trainer ride him in this bit (or something like this) and he went great, he didn't fuss as much and he was definitely listening to the trainer.
