I went on a nice ride Monday. I was fine during the ride, but something is causing severe pain after I ride. I guess it was that sailing over Dillon's head and landing on my butt when he went from a gallop to a sudden stop a week ago.
@phantomhorse13 Do you think a bit less bridle would work with Link? Does he still have his wolf teeth? Could be the bits are hitting the teeth. I was told long ago that feels like a person chewing on aluminum foil.
@RegalCharm : Link does not have wolf teeth and I am regularly poking my fingers in there to make sure they haven't erupted since the last dental he had (last fall). I do actually want to have him bitless when all is said and done, but feel learning to deal with a bit is an important part of a young horse's education, as you never know what may happen in the future (though of course I don't ever plan to sell him).
I got a bit more saddle time at the end of the week. The whole story is in my journal.
