Im leasing a horse that has never been trained in a bit. He responds well to a halter and lead but I can't stop him. He is trained with a hackmore, but I havent ridden him with it because Im not sure how.
Can anyone tell me how to use a hackmore correctly? We ride western.
Also, it it too late to train him with a bit? He is 14-20yrs old and hates having things in his mouth ( you should see me trying to deworm him).
I ride in a prescision drill team, so we have to make sharp turns at a canter, hand gallop, and sometimes even a gallop. Will I be able to turn as good in a hackmore? Thanks!
