Okey so I have so far tried my boy in a full cheek (no go we had pretty much NO brakes what so ever unless I yanked back on him) and a D-ring (this he goes fairly well in but still brakes arent quite there we are working on it) but I want to keep him in a snaffle at the moment im competing in a tomb thumb which he does good in but I want to get him to where I can compete in the snaffle and know he will stop (that is our only issue)
So my question is.. is there a snaffle that is a bit stronger then the D-ring? Or would I be better off just sticking with the D-ring and continuing the stop work in that. I have videos of him going in the snaffle on a good day but I have never opened him up fully in a snaffle because of the brakes issue
Those are after 2 1/2 months of working on his brakes in the snaffle he's come a ways and started to drop his head alot and relax more.
So any ideas... oh and no I am not just trying to get a quick fix im still working with him I just am curious
