[QUOTE=~*~anebel~*~;645458]Yes, buy the biggest Mikmar combination bit that you can find and rip his face off. That'll teach 'im to lean on you! While you're at it, get some huge roweled spurs and two dressage whips so that when he ceases to go forward, you can beat him too. Then you might also consider a tie down for when he starts rearing, and a bucking strap for the bucking issues. Sounds like a great plan.
Not to sound snippy, but I did say I am not comfortable changing bits. I don't feel it will solve it. I don't like using "devices" or gimmicks when riding.
His teeth were done this week. I am going to try the square techinique and hope it was just an off day.
It's hard to read some of these replies, some of you make me feel like such a sub par horse owner. I had him vet checked, I work with an instructor. I just wanted a little advice, not to be bullied.
Can the next replies not be so sarcastic please?
