Did I adjust the headstall correctly?

This bit is new to us. What do you think about the set? I set it two different ways; not much difference though.

Comments? Critiques? I think I may have gone a bit too small on the pics. If the pictures aren't big enough, let me know and I'll resize again.

Setting one looks better to me.

Thanks, waresbear.

I've found it really depends on the horse. Some prefer a higher bit, some prefer a lower bit, and others just don't care one way or the other LOL.

I like the look of position 1 a whole lot more, but you might try riding her in both and see if there's a difference in her attitude.

THanks, smrobs. That makes a total of three for setting one because that is the one that I like as well. I took her our for a walk and a graze with it set that way. She seemed fine and responsive. I purposefully didn't dress properly so I wouldn't be tempted to ride, but I think she would have been fine.

Hopefully, I'm going to try her out tomorrow with this setup and see how it goes.
