Yeah, that is what we said about the curb strap too. The BO wanted to put it back where he had it and I said no leave it he was throwing his head back and acting crazy, the BO said oh I just hit him in the head with the reins UGH. Love my new BO's they are so nice but he's pretty cowboyish.
Mostly just doing trails, its gotten so cold here, no arena just the pasture to ride in and deer hunting so not doing a lot of riding right now. Going to look at another boarding facility tomorrow, but she said her arena gets so icy in the winter so I might wait till spring.
