This is how you run the rope thru the bridle...you need a snaffle it will be easier on the horses mouth. You always go from inside to out. IMG_0914.jpg
Run through the stirrup, towards the back. IMG_0915.jpg
The rope has to be above the hocks, ALWAYS, otherwise the horse could get tangled and hurt. IMG_0916.jpg
These last two pictures are just of the rope. My dad made this one for my sister and I. I will have to ask my sister how she measured the horse to get the size of the rope because I'm not sure about that part. But you can get this kind of rope (and the fittings) at TSC or anywhere that sells rope. IMG_0920.jpg IMG_0921.jpg
Don't look at my mare! :) She is super dirty, I took these after I worked her this morning.
