I put this in this section because I realise this is a bit problem not a training problem.
Abby has been putting her head down, which is pulling the reins out of my hands? In Mums words 'it seems like she is trying to get the bit out of her mouth'. We have her in a Tom Thumb (Korsteel Tom Thumb Bit) which is what the prevouis owners trained her in. I have had it fitted by some experienced, I clean it after every ride.
I have light hands, I'm not pulling at her mouth in anyway. Should I try her in a O-ring snaffle? I have asked the owners of a tack shop what they thought and they said that the Tom Thumb is just like a O-ring snaffle but it has bars there is stop it from going through there mouth.
We were going so good too!
