I have been having a hard time trying to get Fable engaged. She is an 11 yr old trail horse turn english for about 4 months now. Before she was rode in a long shank with her face up, she now rides with her head down but I am having a hard time getting her to allow me contact. I can push and push and she will either fling her head up or put her nose closer to her chest to avoid it grrr
I am currently riding her in a D-ring snaffle, and I want to try a softer bit, however I have gotten different people telling me different things, if I wanted to go softer then a snaffle do I go for a mullen mouth or a french link? I don't have the funds to buy both
Also, I have had her teeth check and there all good, she rides in contact fine when run around wild on trails lol, just when im trying to school that she is all nervous with the bit.
