When I re-trained Little Bit, I started her in a D-ring snaffle, then eventually progressed through a series of bits up to the Little "S" hackamore. I like running my barrel horses with the Little S, and that's what I want to eventually ride Cherokee in.
So, my question is, should I start her with a D-ring, or an english hackamore? I start with an english hackamore because it is most like the Little S in weight and handling, but it is a little stronger.
Just asking for opinions, or if you have training bit suggestions, I'm happy to hear them! :)
