    Did I adjust the headstall correctly?

    This bit is new to us. What do you think about the set? I set it two different ways; not much difference though.

    Setting 1:

    reg-setting-3.jpg

    Setting 2:
    irreg-setting1.jpg
    irreg-setting3.jpg

    Comments? Critiques? I think I may have gone a bit too small on the pics. If the pictures aren't big enough, let me know and I'll resize again.

    I've found it really depends on the horse. Some prefer a higher bit, some prefer a lower bit, and others just don't care one way or the other LOL.

    I like the look of position 1 a whole lot more, but you might try riding her in both and see if there's a difference in her attitude.

    THanks, smrobs. That makes a total of three for setting one because that is the one that I like as well. I took her our for a walk and a graze with it set that way. She seemed fine and responsive. I purposefully didn't dress properly so I wouldn't be tempted to ride, but I think she would have been fine.

    Hopefully, I'm going to try her out tomorrow with this setup and see how it goes.
