I ride my horse in just a cheap medium port about 45 bucks. but she will work in any bit i put her in, which should be true of all trained horses, and just cheap spurs, there should be no reason why you would need a 500 dollar bit, if the horse is trained properly then it shouldn't really matter. as for getting used to the leverage, ride with the trainer, or with a trainer closer to you because i notice all the time how heavy peoples hands are, and reining is one sport where you really have to learn to ride and have your horse work well with light hands.

Well, I am hoping that the riding I did last winter with NO reins helped, since I learned more about helping my horse turn from other cues, as well as got rid of some of my "security blanket" feeling of contact frrom SO many years riding H/J. I have been riding him in just a rope halter for months, plus the trainer has lesson horses I can learn on, which will be a huge help, I would think. Really looking forward to it.....supposed to start in the next couple of weeks, at least until after the first of the year when I have to go north again.......
