Chocolate's First Drive
So I posted earlier with info and pics of our new miniature foal, and thought I would share some of his other half, also with a question. So I purchased this miniature mare "Chocolate" about 6 months ago, and fairly swiftly started her driving training. We had very little problems getting her used to the sounds of strange things following her (wheel barrow, tarps, bells, etc), and the harness went awesome. When I started bitting her, I was having plenty of issues. We couldn't find anything she liked at all! We took her to the dentist and he said her teeth were fine, but showed us that her mouth was full of scars! So she has been hitched a couple of times now with just a halter for driving (I know that is kind of a stupid idea but she literally spooks in place, she never bolts, barely ever spooks in the first place, and is more bold and curious about "scary" objects anyways, but I do know that anything can happen). I was just wondering what people would suggest for her bitting problems? And anyways thought I would share some pics.
Thanks everyone in advance!!
