    Post Training horses to the bit...

    I have a mare she's fully broken in. When I first got her she was only just broken to the saddle. My Grandfather had bred her and started her with pat parrelli horsemanship and I continued with that.But I have not trained her to the bit.But she is highly strung she has let me stick the bit in her mouth. I worry that if I start training her to ride with one and if I do it wrong she might have a hard mouth or have bad brakes.Any tips or links I'd love some?

    Just remember that soft hands equal a soft mouth. Avoid jerking on her and only apply the least amount of pressure to get what you want. Graduate up to stronger pressures if the need arises but never yank. And remember to release the pressure as soon as she does what you want. Just be consistent and soft and she will end up the same way.
