Ok so 1.) I want to go bit shopping, but because my horse is a riding school horse I am unable to take the bit with me as people will be using him. Do I measure the bit, if so in inches or centimetres? He finds it uncomfortable on his teeth as it clangs so I think he needs something softer on his mouth. At the moment he has a single jointed snaffle bit and I can't remember whether he has an eggbutt snaffle or loose ring. What does everyone think about getting the Flexi mouth in a snaffle form?
2.) I am also going stirrup shopping, some advice? Never been.
3.) My horse was taught how to walk back when I walk back and now he does it constantly in his stable and when I go to back him. I have been told to ignore it and yes this works but I usually have to follow him round in a complete circle before he stops. I can't hit him or punish him in anyway because he's not doing it out of naughtiness, he thinks he's doing right.
