    Daniel loved the point of the latest article as always...if you would permit me however, one small correction....its not "cereal killer" that is a hungry teenage boy in the morning! (serial).

    Your videos are very helpful. I watched the one on getting respect during feeding time. I used it on my 6 month old foal and she is respectful now, not only during feeding time. Thank-you for the advice.

    Hi, Daniel. I just watched your video "A bit About Bits -- Bit Basics and Snaffles" and found it to be the best video I've seen on bits to date.

    Just wanted to leave a note thanking you for the lessons. It's refreshing to work with someone as knowledgeable and pleasant as you are! I have a blast while I'm there. I am sure that you'll be able to work me through my issues, I just hope poor Curly doesn't get frustrated with me!

    Thank you so much for the advice. Nothing like horse people. They just have a way of reaching out and offering a helping hand. I am going to use the D Ring snaffle for now in an attempt to soften his mouth and gain attention (per your advice). I have been looking at Billy Allen mouth pieces on bits and the Reinsman D L Reiner looks good. I like the way it gradually tapers down before the roller at the break in the snaffle. I have one here, but it abruptly drops of at the roller. I can pinch my finger if I flex it, so I know it could pinch his tongue. Again, many thanks for you taking the time to help me!

    I started my horse's groundwork yesterday, followed by a riding exercise. I have been using one of the conventional walking horse bits with all that leverage. I am now trying to get a more appropriate bit for him. I think I want something with much shorter shanks with places on the bit for working him in a snaffle in the round pen and short shanks on the trail. I like the Reinsman 3 piece mouthpiece with the spinner piece in the middle with limited bend. I lean more toward western type bits than English. But, I am keeping in mind that I am at a very early learning level in equine training so any advice is welcomed. What do you think. Hope you don't mind me asking. Thanx
