I those,too.

I was riding down the trail and I looked down and saw my bit hanging under my horses chin. The bit had broken in half.

We have a cheeky stock horse mare who has some strange ability to remove her own bridal when your riding its a stockmens bridal so no noseband she does this weird shake and then will rub her head slightly against the neck of one of the other horses and wammo it's off'' no matter how tight the throat lash is (within reason) she always does it lucky she's so cruisy you just jump of and put it back on but its a regular occurrence

When I go out on trail rides his halter stays on under his bridle and so does his leadrope, I tie it to a makeshift buck-strap on my saddle. I also tuck the throatlach through the rings on his halter.

Looks like this (I use a bit now though):

I ride out on my younger horse with the halter & lead rope on also. Your very lucky. I've had the screws holding the bridle together come apart, but I never had the bit come apart.

I undid the chicago screws off the reins and reatached them to the rope halter. I always leave the halter on when I ride. Keep the horse to a nice walk and didn't let him get excited and we made it back to the trailer with no problems.

Concerning Chicago screws, if you use Loctite (any hardware, automotive, or Walmart will carry it) or even clear nail polish, it will never come loose on the trail. After a near wreck years ago, I take apart all my tack with those screws once per year and redo them.

Iride: Thanks for that tip man!!! I'm going to do that today! My fiance' spends most of his time in the garage working on cars (mine mostly haha) and anyother type of machinery so he has plenty of loctite. And I have plenty of clear polish. I'm going to use the loctite though, that stuff works real good. I don't know why I didn't think about that before.
