    Did they look at that picture before they decided to put it on their home page.

    It's hard to see in the picture, but could it possibly be a Pelham Bit with only one set of reins?

    Hmm... I've done something like that before (with the bit). I would clip the reins where the curb strap attached and use it like a snaffle. Mechanically, it wasn't hurting anything. It made him look like a walrus, though. This was back when I was 14/15 and just "learning" how to "train". Also, the way she's dressed (fancy shirt) indicates maybe she wasn't out in the barn to "train" but maybe just decided to hop on and take a photo. I'll take sneakers on someone during a bareback ride any day to barefeet or sandals! Might be different if she was in a saddle where sneakers would actually be "dangerous".

    Could be. They do make a cowboy pelham.

    I am 96% sure that its a tom thumb with the reins attached to the chin strap hooks...

    The other possible sire to the foal is the grulla (a link in the side bar will take you to his page) the no conformation shots, picture of someone riding barefoot and flames that followed the mouse around on the screen make for a second good advertisement choice. Cannot tell how nice these stallions may or may not be.

    My virus protection keeps kicking me off the page but, I agree that looks like a tom thumb.

    It's a poorly done site. I don't understand why someone would use a picture like that to advertise, looks ridiculous in my opinion. Like they have no clue what they are doing.

    Some really terrible pictures on this website - the horses look like crab, sure, all horses don't look very flattering in their winter fur, but with that AND the angle of the pictures - scary!
    Only thing where I have to say that there is nothing wrong is the way how the reins are snapped into the bit. It's a training bit with two sets of rings for the reins - the lower ones are to use the bit as a curb, the higher ones are to use the bit like a snaffle, thus draw reining is okay in this case. The chin strap goes in the rings that attach the bit to the bridle. I like to use this kind of a bit when I go from the plain snaffle to a curb bit, it can be ridden with two sets of reins as well.
    Now, training a horse without a saddle I call unprofessional ... but that's just me ;)
