If he responds to the jaw chain, leave it there.

Personally, I prefer a chain over the nose, and have only had a stud rear on me when the owner put the chain under the jaw. We teach to move away from pressure, so technically they *should* come down with pressure over the nose and go up with pressure down under the jaw.

Thanks cynical I got a choke collar for a dog and looped it through the bottom of a halter. I dont need anything harsh just a tug to remind him to focus on me.
Whenever he or Star are led out of their pens they arch their necks and start floating, well really prancing.
Sam has calmed down and Star is almost back to normal.
The last few days riding Star I would have sworn I was on one of those lipizzainer stallions.
I have yet to ride Sam his back bones are too prominent and I want to wait for the vet to clear him. He has an enlarged hock from an old injury. He has been ridden in a lesson program just not recently. Shalom

I've seen chains used both over and under. My trainer uses them under if needed, and for show training. As was mentioned, this is how they are shown. I personally prefer rope halters.

Congrats db on another stunning Arab!! I'm sure he'll blossom under your care!

We had a short sunny spell today so got the girls in. quick brush, tacked up Looby and the heavens opened again, 10 minutes in the ménage and I was soaked to the skin so gave up and she looked really happy about it. I think they have one of those indian rain stick things hidden somewhere
My husbands had a few good job offers from California & Texas and though the thought of escaping the CT winters appeals I just cant cope with the thought of that heat. The elder of my two sons who moved here with us spent some time in Arizona and really struggled, he's now in Colorado via Wyoming which he loves. The other one is at college in Georgia and was more than ready to come back to CT for the summer as it was heating up there
I believe Jaydee, it is, "Horses sweat, gentlemen persprire and ladies glow."

I've sure done a lot of 'glowing', since I came to live in the desert of California. I hate the summers here. I never thought I would miss English weather.

Thanks Druydess. I hope he will add height and a long neck when crossed withb stars foal s and Star can add refinement and strong arab type.
I thought Sam was 14.3 but I think he is 15-15.1.
I am walking him about 30 minutes twice a day and will post tomorrow about what the vet says.
he is determined to breed or join the mares in the pasture. Very determined. However he is not pacing as much here as he did at the former owners. I think in a week or two he is going to settle down completely.
Lizzie I like the California desert. I love the heat. Unfortunately it has rained a lot this spring and even this morning.... IN JUNE. I had to remind myself I was living in Texas. We are still in an extreme drought here so every drop counts.
If it rains everyday as a true texan I will not complain...aloud that is. Shalom

I knew it went something like that Lizzie!!!
I have obviously never been much of a lady as 'glowing' has never been my thing - but I do go at everything like a 'navvie'
I say the same about English weather especially as the heat here in CT is usually also very humid but I'm sure I look back through rosy coloured spectacles as they say and my DH constantly reminds me how much I moaned about the seemingly endless mediocre summers. I have to look at pics like this one taken at a summer show in the UK - me wearing a thick sweater and a padded jacket with a very pissed off looking son!!
Sorry to hijack your thread Donald - so pleased things are settling down there

Use a chain only if you need it that's all I have to say. I don't know a whole lot about Arabs but they're pretty nice. :) Your boy looks pretty good. Can't wait for updates!

Just stopping in for a bright point in my day. Glad to hear he made it safely and things are going well. Can't wait to see pics. I worked for an Arabian stud/show barn many years ago but there was no racing stock. He looked taller than 14.2 from his pics though.
