Hey Everyone! I would like some advice and opinion on transferring my horse from a western d-ring snaffle bit to bitless. He is a 14 year old quarter horse and when we ride bareback and with just a halter and clip on reins, he does pretty darn well, on the trail and in the arena. He just seems happier and more responsive. I wouldn't say he fights the bit or drives through it, he does have a tendency to want to turn at points when I don't want him to, but I can usually correct that with my leg and seat. He does fine with a simple bit, but I have been taught to use the reins as my last option/aid, so I ride a lot from my seat and leg, which makes bareback riding and no bit, just about a good ride every time. I am considering going with a bosal or sidepull, any advice on these?? He doesn't run on me ever, he does spook occassionally, but it is only for a few seconds that he either does big leaps or small leaps to the side. So I feel like control with him is not an issue. And then with the reins, is it better to go from the side or under the chin? I have been told he is a neck reined horse, but I think he does fine either way. Last question? . . . can I go back and forth here and there between a bit and bitless? Just if I wanted to take him somewhere new and would think about having that control if I needed it. Thanks so much for any feedback!! Would really appreciate it!
What do you ride in? What kind of saddle and why do you like it? Pictures would be awesome :). Let me see your set up! I'm a barrel racer and would like to get into some long distance riding but my barrel saddle isn't the most comfortable on long rides for me or my mare. Thanks!!
I know there is a mirrored saddle somewhere in Las Vegas hanging over a bar, but has anyone ever seen a mirrored saddle on an actual horse in or a parade or Rodeo? I work at an Auction house and am looking for comperable sale prices( if any).
Has anyone ever tried, or been sucessful at re-dying faded nylon tack? If so any tips, suggestions? Did the dye run/bleed on a sweaty horse? I have an old nylon bridle- faded... I know if can just get a new on, but it's still in good condition and of sentimental value (first horse's) after over a decade. I thought of trying to re dye it.
