I'm also starting the process of getting a horse used to a bit and bridle.Chica,the mare I recently purchased,has always been ridden just with a halter;it was mainly kids riding her,so they'd just throw a lead and halter on she's and kinda let her wander were she wanted to,she learned to get away with alot of stuff. She had a month of professional training done and was supposedly ridden with a snaffle bit then,but she acts like she doesn't have a clue what a bit and bridle are.She'll let me put one on her now,but always curls up her tongue or puts it over top of the bit. I'm hoping once she gets used to it,she'll quit..

Welcome Linzie!
All I can say about your situation,is tread carefully and go with your gut feeling.Some of these giveaways turn out wonderful,but they can also come back and bite you.

So the inlaws came down today, they wanna do a BBQ and have "family time"... I spent a lot of the morning cleaning the house so my MIL wouldn't complain that I'm not taking care of her baby boy... And what does she do? Brings her little rat of a dog (min pin) and he's all muddy and tracks mud and grass into my house onto my newly mopped white floors *insert angry face here*
