I might actually try that on her. She does get really lifty on me so I'm hesitant for a bit that has a lot of lift in it, but you never know. It wouldn't hurt to try it after the dozens of bits we've already tried with the little brat.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

It's a nice bit, Nikki is really picky about bits and she gets along with that one great. I don't have to have a whole lot of lift with Nikki either, actually the more I mess with her and get in her way the worse we do..It's just the extra reinforcement and stop that I like so much about that combo bit. She can be a "train" so I like to have a bit with a good stop behind it...That's why I suggested that one to you.
