    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?

    First off, the reason your picture isnt working is because it isn't uploaded to the internet =) that's a link to a file on your computer/hard drive =) that's why we can't see it hun ^^ You can upload pictures to the Horse Forum by making a profile for your horse (click the "Horses" button on the narrow green bar beneith the HF banner. You can make a profile for her there too! ^^)

    As for the bitting problem... Have you had a problem bitting her yet? Or are you just worried that because she is high strung she may have a bitting problem? I see you said she is fully broken in but not to the bit.. does this still mean she is in a hackamore/bozal?

    I'll give ya s'more help as I get more info on your specific scenario =) I just don't want to mislead ya!

    More information would be good :) If you have had a bit in her mouth before what kind of bit was it? What was her reaction?

    I stuck the bit in her mouth but didn't pull the bridle over her head and she just chewed on it a little the bit I used was a sweet iron eggbut snaffle but it wasn't chunky at all like most eggbut's

    Skippy she is in a bozal ,hackamore and rope halters I like the rope halters the best they are not as hard on her nose as the bozal.
