    Kinda silly but so proud of Carolina!!

    Well as you know I got Carolina home this week. She's underweight, neglected and has been left in a pasture for two years. So sad to do that to any horse really. She's such a sweetheart. Hopefully she hasn't forgotten any of her level 4 training lol!

    Anyway - I was messing about with her and decided to try out the new bit I got for her. A Korsteel Flexi Jointed Dee snaffle. One of those new ones with the peppermint flavouring.

    Her new bridle hasn't been fitted to her and she hasn't worn a bridle in two years. So I was a little nervous. But I brought it out, let her sniff it for a moment, put the reins over her ears, clicked my tongue and she took the bit right away, no issue. It took me a couple of minutes to adjust the bridle to her and she just stood there waiting for me to finish.

    I patted her all over and praised her, left it on for a few minutes while I ran my hand everywhere checking her over (she has tender feet right now) then praised her again and took the bridle off.

    She snorted a bit and nudged the bridle like she was disappointed I took it off! I guess she was ready to get going and do something LOL!

    Here's a pic of her checking stuff out in her new bridle...

    Thank you! I can't wait til she gains weight and gets some condition.

    I think it's great that she did so well for you. I also think it's great that even though you really want to ride you are takeing your time to let her get better.
    She is a lovely mare, and I'm sure she's going to be great when she does get well enough to ride, especially if she took the bit that well.

    Oh yeh, I don't want to rush her at all. I'd dearly love her to gain a lot of weight before I start lungeing her. Plus I plan to take her for lots of walks.

    That's not silly at all! What a great job with her! Also have I been in the horsey dark lately? Peppermint flavored bits??!! That sounds cool.

    Aww, great job with her, she's so cute! :) She has a very sweet face. Once she's all ready, I'm sure she'll be a lovely horse!

    LOL yeh that's what I said.. so I had to get one and try it. The bits are coated with some kind of plastic.

    She's very sweet and has a great personality. I learn something new about her every day.

    She's gorgeous, I would love to find a horse like that.
