And? What does that have to do with anything? I find that quite surprising since Waterford's are quite poo poo'd in the dressage world since they do not incorporate proper riding.

Many Top Level riders I've had the priveledge of riding under in Clinics all stress that bits do not solve problems, but proper education, riding and training does.

If all your horse is, is is heavy on the forehand - then there are holes in your education and your horses. The Waterford teaches you nothing, nor your horse - I guarantee you, you take that bit out of his mouth and he will be heavy on his forehand, yet again.

I'm not going to argue with you on the Waterford bit. I stand hard on my beliefs with that bit, and that bit is not meant for everyday riding - ESPECIALLY if you do dressage. And especially if your horse does not need it.

Listen, I believe this is a huge misunderstanding. Im 13 years old, and not very expierienced. When my trainer jeri rides pumpking she uses a dee ring snaffle. He's fine, and shapes up and looks beautiful. He is 7 years old but he coliced badly when he was 5 and had surgery. We just bought him and are just putting him back into work. Since I have more important things to worry about than his bit for right now, we are using the waterford until I become more confident. Then we are changing into a more mild bit. Jeri is in the process of training pumpkin and she rides him once a week. The only reason I have confidence problems is because I took a nasty spill in august and went to the hospital and blacked out and yada yada yada. Im sorry for the misunderstanding and I hope you realize what im going through and that I would NEVER EVER EVER want to hurt my horse. btw I don't ride dressage

Thank you for the explanation, I do appreciate it. It makes complete sense as to why you are using this bit for the time being, so that you can become a more educated, strong rider that your pony needs.

I am sorry about your accident, that is very traumatizing to have to go through, but be proud of yourself for riding again!

*HUGS*
