Thanks SO much! I'm going to try riding him in a d-ring snaffle tomorrow when I flat and hopefully well get some results! I'll post a video of it once I take it. And thanks for the compliment on him! :)

First I have to say I love your guy. Very handsome. For A circuit hunters he has to be through from behind. He has to push into the contact and round. He isn't tracking up in the video which is what they are going to want on the A circuit. Pick up contact,not like a dressage rider, but a long and low contact and push him into the bit from behind. He looks like he has been trained to hold his head in this spot and not really asked to use himself from behind and come into the bit. I don't think he is scared of the Pelham at all he just hasn't been taught how to come through. If you'd like change to a d ring snaffle just to see but I really don't think that's the problem. I'm more for putting the horse in what they go best in. Pelhams seem to be a trend in the hunter ring now for years, if he goes nicely in a d ring go for it.

Thanks so much! That's much clearer! I want to try something not as strong for the flat so he doesn't over flex which he's gotten better about (and which I've gotten about for that matter). Thanks for all the helpful advice :)

When you change te bit he may still go btv unless you push him into it. So ask with every stride with leg on and off each stride to lift up and push. Good luck. He's a pretty boy

Hi guys! Here's the video of us riding today. I rode him in my friends bridle (regular snaffle) and he felt a ton better. Please ignore my sweatyness... It was about 99 degrees with 60% humidity so it was ridiculous haha. Let me know what you think! I was really trying to push him forward and I think he responded pretty well for never being ridden in that bit before.
