Well here is the story,I have a 9 year old Standardbred mare, called Georgie.She is an ex-pacer.She came off the track at about 7 years old, and my instructor broke her in.My instructor used a double twisted snaffle to break her in.I sold my old horse as he used to buck,pigroot,kick,rear,bolt etc.
So i was looking for a new horse.I told my instructor i was just looking for a pleasure horse.So she recommended Georgie, I went to have a look at her, and she was perfect, wasn't scared and she was a really good girl :)
Well, we bought her, and u i used to take lessons on her in the double twisted snafffle, but used the softest hands possible.Just recently we have moved her away from my instructors property to a place 5 minutes from my house.Straight away, we changed her bit, to a french link snaffle, and I have tried it on her a few times, and she was rearing and she has never done that before, she really doesn't like it.She uses a snaffle at the beach and still head tosses, jumps about etc.
I have ridden her in the halter, and she is calm and responsive.So I am just wondering, has anyone used the NoBit Bridle?
Do they recommend it? What is anybodys advice on what I should do for her?
Also, the NoBit Bridle has the same amount of control as having a bit in their mouth,I just feel as though Georgie could do so much better and be more calm and concentrated and learn more, if she wasn't so focused on fighting the bit.
