Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh really, they will?? Well I better make sure its what I want, lol. Maybe I will email them and see. Thanks!
I am going to switch back to my curb for now and either send back or sell the snaffle. That really is not going to work for us. Talk about no breaks!
Its not that she is not trained, maybe she is over trained, lol. Story is she was a dressage champ, (lady I got her from saw pictures) and the gal had to auction her off for unknown reasons, the lady I got her from bought her for a steal and actually saw the ad for her on dreamhorse.com for 3500 for a quick sale, anyway, she bred her twice and rode her western in a snaffle. I think she said she had her 5 years. She is 14 now. I got her in October and ride western, so its not her that has a problem, its me, trying to figure out what she needs, lol.
She is one of those that is just big and gentle and does not realize she is appearing stubborn, she has a big presence and you have to remind her that she is big. She will push and shove if you let her get away with it, but I do not think she is being disrespectful as much as its just her way. She seems to be a gentle giant, lol.
