Yesterday I went to a barn to try three horses for lease(one of which I absoloutley love and will talk about another day) the owner seemed to want to tack up the horse by herself, and I let her.
When she put on the (English) bridle she had the noseband already buckled and slid the noseband around the horses nose while she put the bit in. I have never seen anyone do this before as I was taught and observed people buckling it after they put the bit in.
I was wondering if anyone does it this way, my way, or a different way and why they do it that particular way. Thanks!
Like everyone else says, there's no real reason for it. Unless it's on a small child's pony and the buckle's particularly stiff :)
