We got an 18 year old TB mare about a month ago. I have started working with her and tacking her up ect.
I use a sweet iron snaffle with my gelding so thought I would start her with that bit. She hated it! She was gagging and trying to spit it out. She got better after a few minutes but never stopped working the bit.
If she doesn't like the sweet iron, should I just try a plain snaffle? Copper?
