-fidgets- neither of those is even close to a snaffle lol.

I don't think the top one is a revised pelham, it has "gag" action too. A pelham mouthpiece doesn't slide about on the shank even a minimal amount.

Agreed - I am meaning the same concept as in - with the two rein attachment options. Perhaps this bit was a poor example to use but, it is labeled a snaffle and like a pelham gives you direct and leverage pressure. It is not exactly the same as a pelham or used for the same purpose but, it is similar in that way. There are several options similar to the pelham that have been "revised" (in my words) for training and western riding. The cowboy pelham is a good example. I say revised because the idea came from the pelham.

If you google training snaffle or even just snaffle - and hit "images" or "shopping" the first options up have shanks. A snaffle should not have shanks.

My only point that I have been trying to make being there is some misconception out there for some of what a snaffle truly is.

Yes so painfully true! To add to that I believe twisted mouthpieces are against the spirit of the snaffle bit as well though of course they do have their uses.

15year old easy keeper. @15'3 hands 1250lbs. He's a super easy keeper. He is broke to ride but hadn't been under saddle in 18months. Great pasture buddy! My 18m old sticks her hands in his mouth and runs all around him and he doesn't move! Super sweet boy! We hate to see him go but our daughter is getting a smaller horse and we need the pasture room! Thanks call or text it's not letting me upload a pic but I can text a pic to you! 864-704-XXXX

Highlighted the best part. 18 month old daughter! Where is DSS when you need them?

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.

Fat wise it doesn't look too bad. It needs muscle. A LOT of muscle.

Does anyone remember if this man in the pic could be the same guy a while back in a # of CL pics, really yanking the crud out of some poor horse's mouth whom he was trying to sell? Like, really riding HARD and oddly on his horse?

I'll try to find it...It was probably months back--he just really looks like that guy to me...

OMG that horse looks like my mustang! She was adopted as a 2 year old by some person who adopted like 12 at a time, he would starve them and then "break" them out! Then fatten them up and sell them as broke horses. I was told the guy weighed around 300 lbs, and would get on the skinny horses who were too weak to do anything about it. My mare actually collapsed I was told when he mounted her. I was never able to ride her because as soon as I stood next to the saddle to mount she would start trembling and would have panic attacks! She was donated to a petting zoo where she gets all the love she can suck up from the little kids, and will never be ridden in her life!
