Stan, i'm still looking forward to some pics of the breastplate and crupper! Does it go on back to front or front to back
I spoke to my trainer about Sapphira, her horse had a similar problem, he was being a total jerk with the bit, the vet who checked him yesterday told her he has mouth ulcers.....wouldn't the vet have seen them when he did her teeth? She will take a look at her on monday when she's being ridden and we will see......blech I swear i'm going to invest in bubble wrap!!
Our mini clyde had ulcers a few years ago and they were also missed when she had her teeth done - in fact I'n not sure that they aren't connected with the floating if the rasp catches the sides of the mouth and creates little sores.
We rode her in a Dr Cook for a while and still do now every time she has her teeth done as she always seems a bit off with the bit afterwards.
Could be your horse doesn't like a jointed bit or would prefer a plain thinner snaffle?
They say there are now 'bad colours' in horses. I have a plain bay that isn't spooky but she is all 'go go go' - but that's the way I like her!!!
I have bumped into Foxhunter on a few other threads - but hunting season is now underway in the UK and that makes for busy
I imagine Susan has had to hit the ground running in her new job
Stan - I'm thinking that crupper means lots of steep downhill trails!!!!
