Good luck with training,

ivy and sonny on your videos you were both riding with a rope/necklace type thing around your horse's neck. Is that there for you/balance and/or does it help with turning and stopping/backing? I noticed in one of the videos one of you would pull the rope back if he was going too fast or wouldn't stop right away.

I use it for balance and also as an aid for cues.
I fail to remember how sensitive Sonny is to cues so I'll ask too hard and he'll take a sharp turn and I'll loose my balance and since Sonny still have like no mane I have to grab onto something.
For an aid....I use it incase he doesn't respond to won't listen. I always like to have a backup just in case....maybe he'll never need it, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. The rope also will help teach neck-reining and he'll be able to move off of pressure there on his neck also.

The rope is definately not needed, but I'd definately suggest using that first before going with nothing

You're telling me!!! That was a long time ago...when Justin could still run a 25 second quarter mile... we go at a slower pace now...but he still thinks he's flying

I remember we were out there one time - he was FLYING and I had my arms straight out to the sides like I was too (such a cool feeling). Anyways, this boarder walked up to the BO and was like "that horse is going to kill that little (I was 11) girl!" BO replies "nope, she's fine - that's her dad there - he's timing her!"

I want to get there someday, but I won't give up the bit completely :p I'd still keep training the dressage with a bit.
But I want to be able to ride with a saddle and without a headstall. maybe with stirrup leather around his neck for safety.
But I guess I first have to learn to ride him with a bit xD And get a fenced are for practicing. I rode Kirran once without anything but a leatherstrap around her neck, it worked fine for abut 3 minutes, then she realized she was free. xD

About the bits, I just have to say that curb bits are a part of the horses education. You should be able to ride all horses with a snaffle without risking your safety or having to use any strength in the reins, but for some things it's better with a curb when you come to higher dressage levels. Because it has a different (not only stronger) effect than a snaffle.


Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.
