Hey Everyone!! Thanks so much for everyones input!! It's been busy last couple days. I agree with eternal sun that I shouldnt over bit. I plan on trying a Bosal real soon to see how he does in that. Also, I don't know if he hasnt already transitioned over to a bit like a correction bit. I don't have his entire history. I choose to ride him in the hinged snaffle or Tom thumb (Thank you Qtswede) because I knew it was a good all around bit. I guess I should try it just to see how he responds to it. ** don't worry, I'll keep my hands soft **
But I guess Im just having a hard time riding him one handed. Not used to it.
So is it ok to ride him in the same bit I will show him in?? Will he get a hard mouth?? That was my issue..........the dressage barn I board at ride mostly in snaffles then do a training ride in a double once a week or so. Alot of the trainers say they don't like to always use the double.
Maybe this is where Im getting my confusion.
