    If like you said you stay out of his mouth I would think it would fine. If possible see if he has a low pallet this is one area people don't look at. The main reason is a hi port with a low pallet can be a problem. But just the fact that your asking questions tells me you will find the right bit. Best of luck to you and your horse.

    Hi Ellen, thanks!! The over 40 thread looks like a very fun place to post, I plan to hang out there more often for sure.

    The grey horse in my avatar was a gelding I used to own, he passed on many year ago, we sure had some great times out trailriding!

    Sorry I didn't get back to you! I am usually on my phone when on the forum and use the mobile version, so I don't see when people leave messages on my profile. Glad you found the right bit! I unfortunately don't have the tag from mine anymore.

    Hi! The bit Aires loves is the Circle R (by Reinsman) Ride-Lite 3-piece smooth snaffle with copper lifesaver (that's straight off the tag lol). I got it at Tractor Supply for $21.99. It's very similar to the Sharon Camarillo TenderTouch with copper lifesaver, except the mouthpiece is smooth, not wire-wrapped.

    Why not? Mules are cute. "Herr Riese Ohren" by the way kind of means "Mr Giant with Ears" - while "Herr Riesenohren" means "Mr Giant Ears"... both are funny, of course!

    It must be difficult parting with Red, but like you say, he'll probably end up with a very active riding life while you can look for something laid-back (with or without huge ears ). Thinking of you - take care & God bless.

    Yeah, getting old is a big bummer, especially when it comes to riding. We just don't bounce back as easy as before. Thanks for sharing, he is a pretty horse, but sounds like he needs someone strong and very confident to keep him at his best. They had him advertised as docile, so that's why I asked. Some horses just need daily hard work too.

    I am coming into this thread late, so don't know the history of you and Red. If you don't mind sharing, what problems were you having that you couldn't ride him?

    Thank you Ellen! You are so sweet I work nights, and after a week off it is going to be tough to stay awake all night...I am really an "early to bed, early to rise" person.

    I can't wait to see pictures of your golden girls! I looked up your Red too, he looks like such a sweet horse, did you have him since he was a colt like ALUF stated? I don't think I could ever give up a horse I raised. That had to have been really hard for you.

    I've never had a horse do that, and I hate to give advice on something I have not experienced. Daniel Dauphin has made my two favorite videos on bits, and he has far more experience than I do, so I'd suggest contacting him. I've read about horses that go behind the bit, but I've never had it happen to me.
