    Eagle, I have used this bit before when I was transitioning from a snaffle to a curb bit. For some rides, I put a roping rein on the rings at the mouthpiece and kept my other split reins on the shanks. I didn't have to change reins that way, and as long as I didn't get them tangled up on my saddle horn, we were in business! That was actually how I trained one of my horses to neck rein better.... first neck rein and then direct rein if needed.

    Thanks! Oh, lightbulb! That's what that other ring is for?? Haha! Cool!

    Thanks for the wishes for my neck...and for my riding, too. I've had to stay determined to find the joy in spending time with Journey. She's a good girl and has helped keep me steady lately. Life has been hard since around Thanksgiving with my Dad's health is declining and him needing round the clock care...long distance care is heartbreaking. We had to put him in a personal care home. Sometimes I think if I didn't have Journey (and Jesus) I'd lose it completely.

    Sounds like you have your hands full; I hope the transition with your dad goes as smoothly as possible.

    I know what you mean about almost losing it...I think leaning on Jesus is really important and the fact that we can get such joy from our horse(s) means that God loves us and wants us to be happy. He didn't have to make them so beautiful and so wonderful to be around -- but he knew what we needed....
