My horse is a bit chomper, he has been ridden in a medium port bit for years, I have not changed anything on the bridle. Today while on a parade route (and lots of time on his hands) He discovered how to get the shank into his mouth on four occasions. The thing is once he gets a hold of it, he won't let go and he is very well aware of WHO has control. I don't want to die!
Anyone have info on bit guards and which are appropriate for his type of bit? I don't know much about them, could this solve my problem? If I tighten his bridle he'll be smiling from ear to ear, so I do not think that's an option. Thanks!
