    The first pic posted there doesn't look to be pressure on the horses mouth - that's obviously not the case in the other pics.

    Off topic, but is that a girth rub/sore? I just noticed it when I uploaded the pics

    Looks to be.

    What's the vendetta against this particular rider all about?

    Yes, that's a girth rub, nothing to be alarmed about, looks pretty fresh.....these things happen.....nothing a bit of doctoring, salve and possibly a new girth wont fix

    Because it's my horse and when I asked my trainer(who is friends with her) about the release she said that you are supposed to have a tight rein and it didn't seem right to not give the horse their head and let them stretch over the jump at all so I wanted to get a second opinion because I feel she only said it was correct because it was her friend.

    That was my thought too.....I used to ride a horse in a gag like that, but always had one set of reins directly on the snaffle ring.....

    Hmmmm that makes a lot of sense....I was wan to reply, as a photo is only a nanosecond of time.......I'm not sure about jumping, but at some point the horse needs release, otherwise he has no incentive to try........that's my mantra when I ride!!!

    When she first started using this bit she only had one rein and had on the last ring. I told her to she could only use this bit for away shows and had to use 2 reins and this is what I found, might as well have only had the curb rein.

    The pic is older, I was never told about the girth rub. I use a nice sheepskin girth on her. No wonder she is girthy tho.

    This rider is no longer riding my horse, she thinks it's to spite me tho. She thinks her you know what don't stink and that she's doing me an injustice by not riding her. I'm bringing her home next month to make sure this rider doesn't have access to her.

    Definitely misuse of the bit! One rein should always be on the snaffle and one set on the desired ring.

    Yeah, the girth in the pic is very narrow, therefore reducing the pressure distribution....

    good for you! I agree!

    OOOOPS I added my comments in under yours.....seems they meshed together! Will try to bold!
