Adding on, I really do love that Myler bit. I love most of what Myler makes, I got a snaffle that I'll be starting all my colt in and a couple barrel bits/shank bits that my horses have been SO quiet and controlled in. They're absolutely wonderful, but being the western showgirl I have zero experience with english bits above a snaffle.
I think I'm going to ride him in a couple bits of my trainers first. She has several differant pelhams, so we'll see. Apparantly the bit I had been showing him isn't legal for some of the classes I want to show in....But that was also sai by the lady who is only right about 75% of the time, so I'm going to do more research.
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
