I currently use a full cheek twisted snaffle in my horses mouth. He has a strong head and it's hard to keep him in control when jumping. I am strong enough while were in the ring...he is fine seeing he is used to it but still fights approaching jumps. The problem is our barn just got a nice new set of cross country jumps in our pasture.
Depending on what type of day it is he can sometimes be good and not take off after jumping. But, I was thinking about using a stronger bit to give him some brakes so I can work with him more out there so he gets used to it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
