Oval link loose/eggbutt (still deciding) is what I've been dyinggg to try on my horse Sky. He's a good boy in a regular snaffle but he really doesn't love it.. and I want him to work just a little bit softer.

I've heard great things about french-link too.. but my heart is set on that oval link

Otherwise if you want to try a plain old snaffle I have one you can borrow.
Thank you!

From the looks of things I'm going to be starting up lessons again (yay!) on my own horse soon, so I'm sure my riding instructor will be able to help me out too. Thank you everyone for being so helpful!

Yay for lessons. Will your instructor be coming out to the barn or the fairgrounds? Maybe she will be able to have a few bits to try on him too. I'm going to have to google the one you currently have as I don't think I've looked to closely at it. Horse Expo is this weekend don't forget . You can get lots of tack for him.

She is going to come out to the fairgrounds. I know, I'm so excited for the expo! I hope the weather is nice. I plan on spending lots of money

Oooo so exciting. I wish I had money to spend lizzy ate it all. Ugh I still need a saddle though. Maybe find a few bits to try. Used prices aren't bad as long as they aren't a myler. Hopefully lookit doesn't demand only the most expensive equipment like lizzy. Ooo and maybe find some horsey hair gel for his awesome forelock hehe.

I think Sunday is the only nice day. I really want to try a trail ride but I don't know where the trails are. I think lizzy is good enough as ever. How does lookit do?

Lookit can be quite a stinker so hopefully lessons will help sort that out haha :) I want to go on a trail ride too, but I don't know where the trails are either! Scott thought it would probably be good for Lookit to get out on the trails.
