Saranda i'm kind of leery on putting a bit on my mare as well. I have introduced it to her, first it was a simple snaffle and all she did was play with it the whole time. So then I changed it to a simple tom thumb grazing bit (i know alot of people don't like them but they work good for my horses with out being too harsh). She'll wear a bit for about an hour, and then she gets this really depressed look on her face and makes me feel bad. I did invest in a bb and have been working her with it, and a rope halter as well. It took about a year to get her saddle broke and not so cinchy and won't lay down with me in the saddle. Yes I have been using a combination of nh methods, but she doesn't seem to get that going away from the herd is ok. That's my trouble right now is buddy sourness.
I'm not sure i'm just weird, but one day I would like to show the world that I can barrel race, bridleless, bareback and barefoot....
