I've had my mare since she was 3yrs. with 30 days of riding on her. I rode her for the first 3yrs. with a rope halter/bareback pad trail riding. She responds great with the halter but I got a biteless bridle I have used on her for about 2yrs. now and I've never had a problem with no control of her. I also started using a saddle about 4 or 5 yrs. ago now LOL funny thing was I rode with the bareback pad and never once fell off and last year I fell off twice with a saddle!
I did alot of work with her in the round pen when I first got her, making sure I had that WHOA, she's never bolted on me but she used to quite frequently spin on me when something scared her, that hardly happens now though.......I have never ridden a horse with a bite.....
My horses are the joy in my life.....
