    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.

    Before I can give an answer, I have a few questions. First, are you just starting this horse out, as in never has had a bit in his mouth? Secondly, if he has had a bit, does he have a very nervous mouth or is he calm, soft and happy. Feel free to give me a call and we can discuss. 337-278-8506

    thanks for the visitor message. the Appy in that little video is now long term lame. poor fellow, he is in a small dry paddock, and calls out to the herd daily. I give him extra loves, but am no longer riding him.

    I did a clicker training seminar with Z, but he kept accidently biting my hand for the tiny bit of carrot he would get. I think I am not a clicker training devotee.
