Ok so my new guy doesnt have a lot of stop to him.
He neck reins when he wants to. But he is gate sour so I have to direcr rein him away from the gate.
I tried a full cheek snaffle on him this past weekend and I don't have a clue what I am doing wrong. He wont stop with that bit in his mouth. Then when I am trying to stop him or direct rein him, I hear him chomping on the bit. I can see marks on the copper bars of the bit now.
I checked and its behind his tushes teeth and before his premolars There is a slight wrinkle on both sides of him mouth.
Is it the bit? What do you suggest?
Not sure what to do.
Wanted to try a bitless bridle, but with little to no whoaaa on him, I didnt think that would help.
