Im in need of a new bit. My Quarter horse is starting to not respond to his. My friend that is a trainer, and has helped me train my horse to barrel race says I need a lifter bit with a 4 inch shank, with a slightly curved middle. I can't seem to find it on the few sites I normally look on. Anyone know a place to find this bit? I really need this, and I really need the help. Please? Thanks guys!
He is listening, he just wont stop. No matter how much you pull..so that why I need a different one, this isnt a very strong bit..which is something I neglected to mention. He learned the pressure points of this bit. Posted via Mobile Device
Hmm.. your horse is listening to you but wont stop? Actually sounds like your horse is NOT listening to you. I would also rethink your friends status as trainer as someone saying that your horse needs a stronger bit to fix a problem like slowing down. I agree with SorrelHorse about using a snaffle, and I would get a good trainer to help you.
Look, we are just starting barrels with this horse. Long story short, he's been sick, and now he's doing everything perfect until I get him in the pasture and run him full speed..thats when he doesnt wan to stop, and my trainer recommended a different bit.thats it. Posted via Mobile Device
