My paso fino has never been bitted before last Sunday. I put him in a loose ring snaffle. I just wasn't getting the results I wanted from the english hackamore. He was pretty much ignoring me. He was chewing the bit the entire time it was in. I didn't ride him around just walked around the corral with him. Didn't want to shock him too much all at once. Still, chew chew chew. He's a mouthy horse to begin with. If it gets close to his mouth he'll chew on it, doesn't matter what it is. I just didn't feel like chewing the bit was particularly good for him. How can I get him to stop?
Yes I'm signed up for training and lessons in April. Till then I'm on my own and am looking for good advice.
