I am new here and seeking help with my new 4yo COB X Tb, gelding. He's very green but forward and wants to learn. Unfortunately when he gets bored and wants to pull me somewhere in the school I have no say in the matter what so ever. He is currently in a snaffle but I would like something a tad stronger, but not too much because he does listen when we first go into the school. Any advise would be very much welcomed...
I have been recommended an 'action snaffle'. But I don't think he needs something so strong just yet. Is there an alternative?
Please note: I have had bracken on part loan for 3 weeks, and officially bought him today to save him from a gypsy dealer. He is a gentleman on the ground, but in the 'stroppy teenager' stage when being ridden. The previous owner had him 12 months. Bought him from a field, and didn't do much more after. I don't usually like young horses, I prefer something that's been there and raced or hunted.. Any help with my baby would be very happily welcomed.!
