Okay, sooo I know this person and I went to his house tonight.I actually rode my horse there with her new bit but my on my way my curb strap broke so I was just praying she wasn't going to do anything funky. Anyways, we made it there( he lives really close to where I board) and he told me I put the bit in wrong and said I needed a curb strap and I showed him what happened so he made me one out of twine untill I got back to the stable.
He said this bit was used for walking horses and my horse has the wrong bit for her. Well she does really well in the bit except she with yank her head down to eat grass and it's hard to pull her head up...that's the only thing and I just have to watch her closely to make sure I don't let her try to do that.
Here is the bit...well same kind..this is one I found of the internet.
I put it in correct, I know I did or else my horse would give me fits and my friend who knows a lot about horses would have told me. The shanks are pointed down and I didn't flip it around...anyways, so my horse and I do mostly western but are learning english...DOES IT REALLY matter what bit I want to use? I also have a full cheek snaffle but haven't tried that one out.
