when I trained my first horse, I was sooo excited. after a month under saddle he was giving lessons and is now a parade/trail pony. he is my friend's so I trained him for free; knowing hes soo good because of me is reward enough!

My mare was trained in a bosal as well. When I bought her she had never had a bit in her mouth. Although that is a very different looking bosal than I have seen, it almost looks like a hackamore without shanks.

Do you have a close up of it? I'm intrigued...

Keep up the good work! :)

" Although, western rider or not I would wear a helmet while breaking a horse "

Me too!!!


I have broke 3 horses and each time I got on for the first time and rode around was the best feeling.
Wait till you get them in the big ring and WTC for the first time its the BEST!!

Thanks Dashy. Here is the site so you can take a look. It's on ebay and it's actually called a bosal hackamore. It works really well. I started using it on my 11 yr old gelding who started acting up with his bit (another post about a week or so ago). I decided to try using this on him as well and have had no further problems.


BTW i have a helmet coming in the mail for those of you that were so concerned

Thanks everyone and I'll keep you posted...unfortunately no riding lately due to the heavy rains past few days.

I still suggest shortening your stirrups a hole and I think you will be surprised at how well it helps your balance once you get used to it. And congrats on the good work, in your pictures he looks happy, healthy and very interested which is great to have in a baby!! Keep up the good work.
