They have low-port mouthpieces with snaffle cheeks. I use to ride Lucky in one. I'm not sure how much different the action is, but of she likes the Tongue relief, it might be something to look into.

If you want tongue relief I highly suggest getting a Myler.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Everyone in your life is meant to

them are meant to stay till the end.

She is a Very boney Trakahner. Everyone says she looks like she has Percheron in her or fresian. Measured her mouth with twine when I bought the curb I use on her now and she wears a mule draft headstall. She is 17.2hh and her last owners say she weighs 1500lb.

Oh and she wears a 87" turnout blanket, lol.

Oh, and the farrier had to order her shoes, she is a size 4, lol. Here she is.......








My boy with her is McKinley (Kinley) and he is big too, 16.3 TB and about 1300 lb and she makes him look like he is not as fat as I used to think he was, lol. Can you tell I love them?? Anyway, these were taken just after I got her in Oct. Before the abscess that took her down for 3 weeks. I think she looks better now.
