I have a pony who gets very strong when we jump.
When we are going towards a jump she'll spot it and just rocket towards it, and I can't slow her down no matter what I do, so she takes off too late and makes it an awkward jump. And I recently realised that in a video I see she pokes her tongue out and looks as if she's crossing her jaw when she's propelling towards a jump. I looked up the grackle bridle and saw that this might help her, and might give me a little more control when we are going towards a jump.
But i'm hesitant to get it, because I'm worried people might think I'm bad for getting it, or silly because people might think that my pony doesn't need it. When they aren't the one riding her, they don't know what she's like...
What are your thoughts on the grackle? Do you guys think I should get one?
