Rosie was a team roper for many years, she wasn't treated the best. Years of hard hands took their toll on her mouth. I have tried and tried to just ride her with a snaffle.. No matter how hard I have worked on her becoming more responsive to a snaffle, it just doesn't work. She is a REALLY good mare and she tries hard, but she is just extremely hard mouthed.
I'm wanting to start sorting on her. She is normally very responsive with leg/seat/rein cues in higher stress/speed events. I like o-rings because it's easier for me to ride two handed and direct rein..I HATE riding her two handed in the correction bit, makes me feel evil. Lol
Would this possibly be an expectable bit? If it's harsh or not good for what I want, please inform me and point me in the right direction. Hawkeye*Tack*&*Western...
