    Ellen is the horse like a kid on sweets. I know you have been feeding him up to gain condition. Cut down the grain as it can warm their blood. If its sugary take it out of his feed. Give magnesium supplement and wait a week see if he settles down.
    Also, try feed in a plastic bucket and you stand over it with a crop in hand pushing him away. be carful he does not swing his rump in your direction. He will play up but when he stands quiet let him into the food. Then when he is eating push him away again until he is standing quiet then let him eat. When he is enjoying his food walk to the rear and stand at his side out of the kick zone and look at his head. Is he watching you if so go to the other side and see if his eyes follow you. If so walk away because you have his attention. If not go to the front and repeat from the beginning. What its doing is making you the lead horse and he the follower.

    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.
