First time in the bit
Today during training, we tried a snaffle bit on thunder for the first time and worked him a little in it. He did fine, didnt seem to bother him. He responded while leading to turns and stuff. The trainer said that he should probably need a cob or arab size headstall because he's pretty small. Does this sound about right? She tried a cob size on him with a chin strap and nose band and he did fine. Does the bit sound right too? We were just trying it out on him, it's the beginning of trying to break him. I'm starting now introducing tack, and going through to the end of summer, ending with a little more riding (making him 2 1/2). Then do light riding in the arena all through winter and by the time he's 3, he'll know what to expect if we decide to introduce trails, ect that summer. If anyone has any recommendations for tack that would be wonderful! Ill be doing western.
