    Sorry to get so off topic but yes you have. better pics to critique, clippy!!!

    Correct me if I'm wrong (and I'm not) but in these photos you are riding in a shanked bit. All the photos and videos of you riding (that I have seen)that you have posted you have him in a shanked bit.

    Most low port snaffles do not have shanks like that. When you get into a shank like that usually it is attached to a curb. Plus I never said it wasn't a snaffle. You said you had never ridden him in a shanked bit but clearly you have, I was merely correcting your statement.

    That is MOST certainly a shanked curb bit. Maybe you need to review your types of bits.

    Alright, I'm not going crazy, good to know. Those were the pictures I was looking for to try to illustrate what I was saying about Clippy/the bit/etc.

    Personally, while you're at it, I would put him in a normal snaffle -- Maybe something like a french link of some sort without shanks. I'd like to see him in something that is soft in his mouth so you can focus on training him the essentials you need to have to jump.

    That looks to be about a 5" skanked bit without the availability of any snaffle action. A snaffle action is a direct contact/pull and there is only one rein to that bit and it is to the shank only...no snaffle rings at all. That is a pretty heavy duty bit and only the very most experience horsepeople should be riding on the curb only.

    You horse has probably gotten so used to bracing against the tie down that he ignores your aids so he goes with a hollow back and inverted neck.

    I do personally believe that Dressage has alot to do with balance and precision and what not. But I totally disagree that you have to know Dressage to jump?? I've been jumping for about 4 years and have never heard that in my life. And my new trainer is HUGE into dressage, and she has never once told me this??

    But anyways, good luck and I hope all works out!
