I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Thank you for your pictures! :) It's interesting to see how you ad your horses look :P

I still don't have any photos and at the moment I'm trying some new things.. I'll try a non-jointed snaffle (he's used to either a curb and riding-cavesson or a hackamore with extra sudepull reins, or just a riding cavesson), if that works out I'll either buy a snaffle or a pelham. I like double reins. I'll probably also get a new saddle next week, one like the one I have but black and a bit more narrow (mine's a bit wide) but I'll post pictures when I get any :)

Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

He's in a Bitless Bridle here but we ride in a french link loose ring snaffle now. We also added a breastplate and a tie-one-on so I can carry a halter and lead rope for when we stop.

Ok, here be me in trail tack :P

Ignore his frame, I know it's too high.. xD A windy day and excited horse.. And I really don't pull as much in the reins as it looks at some pictures, I could just as well have held in pieces of yarn.. I know because I've tried :P He just always chews on the bit. In one of the bad pictures he's just annoyed at me for not letting him run, but he doesn't fight my hands.. Enough with excuses.. (sorry,.. I can't post a picture of me riding without excusing everything in it..)

Anyway, Our trail riding tack :P A straight bar snaffle today, somedays I use cavessons and sometimes cavessons and curbs, or hackamores. All depends on my mood, just as I switch bridles rather often too.

When I stay out longer I sometimes bring a saddlebag with some sandwiches, and then I have a halter either on him or in the saddle bag :)

My better half usually rides in a dressage saddle but here she is on her bareback pad on Foxy. These are the trails we were on in this pic at East Fork state park in Ohio.

I'm on LT bareback, chinks help keep me from sliding too much. These are the trails in this pic at Paint Creek state park in Ohio

Although we like riding bareback when we can (we think it helps develop a better seat) I don't think we'll be doing much of that on the trails here in WA. In fact I just ordered a new custom wade rig by jj maxwell

That looks like so much fun. I'm coming over!
