I have a young mare that I bought recently that was sold to me as green. I'm used to having to ask for contact on the bit.
As soon as I ask her to move forward she lowers her head, breaks at the poll and mouths the bit. I can feel the difference in her back and stride. She has a very sensitive mouth so I'm cautious not to put much pressure on the reins at all. I ride her in a French link eggbutt snaffle.
A fluke or not truly on the bit?
