My bigger mare has been in a jointed kimberwick for about 6 months now. I got a nice d-ring french link to transition her into and i feel a difference .. In the kimb. shes always stretching down and going on the bit much better and always happy to collect and nice and foward and easy to transition into and down from gaits. In the d i find her more resistant to it and not stretching for it as much and ruffer with her transitions. Could she just like the kimberwick better ? I never had a horse that was more partial to one bit than the other, not like this anyway. I had her in a full cheek for a while and she hated it and we used the elevator as well and she hated that even more. The kimb seems to be the only bit she goes awesome with . She wears a 5 1.2 and not every bit makes that size. we tried a loose ring and a eggbutt and she didn't apprechiate those either lol. I wanted to get her out of a curb just because i thought it would be better using a nice snaffle. nothings wrong with her mouth/teeth. Maybe she dosen't like the french link ? Any one have any ideas or suggestions haha. Im curious to see what others think of this.
