Just thought I would start some conversation! I am stuck at home house cleaning today, lol.
What is your favorite snaffle? What type of snaffle do you prefer on green horses?
I really like thick loose ring snaffles. For a fidgety horse I love the D rings, with all the rollers. Seems to settle the horse, with something to play with.
I also LOVE full cheek snaffles, as the bar pushes on the coners of the lips/face, kind of like a side pull, or halter.
I just put a bit on my colt for the first time, It was a loose ring snaffle with a sweet iron mouth. He hates it... but I will let him get use to is, and try a few others.
What are the pros, and cons of Egg Butts, D rings, loose rings, ect?
I aso really like to start my horses in a loping hackamore, and side pull. I even ride many of my horses in a halter, sidepull or bosal. I usually use somethign mild like that when I put the kids on. Then I don't have to worry about kids jerking on the mouth.
