    I wonder if she is one of those trolls who comes over from other forums to try to rile us up? Second to that, I wonder if she even knows that starting all this drama is actually fun for some of us?
    I agree. I hope she sticks around.

    Oh that Santa hat is causing so much pain. You need to stop that right now. Look at that horses face. Look at the pain. I tell you are being so mean to her. LOL

    I'm going to ignore your ignorance right now, loveeemyhorseee and say I ride bitless and WISH I could use a bit. I don't because my throws a huge fit because she doesn't like things in her mouth. Riding her with a simple O-ring snaffle results in pinned ears, deviant attitude, and head throwing.

    I ride her in a sidepull with pressure knots on the noseband, which she does much better in, but I would rather use a curb on her. Before I got her, I was used to riding a different mare that would pick up a bit from my hand and hold it while I put the rest of the bridle on and I could barely move my hands to get her to move how I wanted. I don't have that anymore. I have to move my hands all over the place. I can't just make small movements with my pinky fingers to get a response; I have to move my entire hand a at least an inch.

    You know what I love? When a total newbie comes on and tells some of the most respected members that they know nothing! It's hilarious!

    Now, if you will excuse me I have to run out to the paddock and tell Rex that obviously he just doesn't know any better and that is why he acts up when I ride him in the halter. All that relaxation and focus he has with his lovely snaffle is obviously just because he is so used to it.

    HC, he's probably a masochist.... That's why he likes his bit so much.

    Ah, Hoofprints, that Christmas photo brought tears to my eyes! Do you send out Christmas cards with it?
