Obsession with the bit
My horse is obsessed with getting his tounge over top of the bit instead to under it. His old owners didn't ride him with a flash, so we added one with his bridle and that sort of fixed the problem. When you first but on the bridle he starts fitteling with the bit, once you put the flash on he reliezes he can't open his mouth and he stops, until he starts to move. When you get on him you can feel him playing with the bit, when you ride his head is always moving and his mouth is always opening and closing ( well opening and cosing as much as the flash allows) It makes it realy hard to keep contact with him. When he stops he continues chewing. This habit is exceedingly annoying, and it's not very attractive. Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop this?
