Sky is a 5 yr old Paint. The man I bought her from had her for a year and is the one that trained her. He rode her every day, had her in parades, took her camping, and put miles and miles of trails on her. She doesn't spook or bolt, and doesn't fight me at all. She can neck rein and back just fine. She doesn't have any special training. I'm not sure if she can even side pass. So that's what I know of her background and this is the bit that she's uses
The only issue I have with her is that she tosses her head a lot. She does what I ask but tosses her head in the process. She has a very soft mouth. Her old owner said he refused to sell her to a man that was too heavy handed with her. I'm not sure why he chose to use a tom thumb on her but I would really like to change it. So I was thinking about this dog bone snaffle. Is this a good bit to try or is there something else that would be better?
