ohhhhh! I thought you were like "no don't lunge with a bit" I'm sorry, that was my fault.

knowing that info about lunging with a fit is pretty shocking. But i'm sure that's why JDI suggested to loop it around so that wouldn't happen.

I'm most likely going to try both ways out and see which way works for Vega the best.

Ya, I like the little thing that attaches to both sides of the bit. I forgot what its called but it goes under the chin and you attach the line right to a ring in the middle. lol

i saw one of those, but wasn't sure if that would get in the way of the lunging system.

Did you use that surcingle on her? I've been waiting to hear about whether or not it slips and slops around when being lunged with since I've been wanting to buy it and help my horse get a lower headset when trotting.

Well i did use it on her, but she didn't blow out when i tighten it so when she was trotting/cantering it started to slide back, so i just took it off. But after she got her sillies out, i put it back on and it seemed to stay in place.

I can't comment on anything else about it because she just wore it once.
But i am going to use it when i do lunge her and stuff. I feel it was worth the $20.00

I would advise you against getting the caveson though. It's a waste of money.
