It was very odd.... and it is good of you to be sorry about something that happened a long way from texas
But riding a western saddle on a quarter horse some poeple in the Uk see shanks on a bit and assume that you are being too tough on your horse.
Mack and I have been together for 18 years now... and he seems quite happy with the arrangement.
I like the bitless bridle because I want him to be able to eat when we are doing long journeys
One fellow horse back traveller told me that on a journey to never pass good grass - even if you have only been going an hour - let your horse have a ten minute bite.
Some people have asked me if I can stop the horse with the bit..... so far so good and I assume that if he has not run away with me by now he is unlikely to in the future
