Four Main Reasons A Horse Does Not Accept A Bit

Recommended Posts

he doesn't seem to think so. just as an observation every dressage trainer I've met around here rides in a single broke thin snaffle unless going to compete where a curb is required. it's the "everyday" bit.

Yeah, it is in England too. I just have a personal dislike of putting the same bit on every horse without thought - when growing up in England it was single jointed eggbutt unless the horse didn't like it, and then it was twisted bit or a freaking kimberwicke! VERY few people thought to change to another mild bit (and when they did it was rubber snaffle). If the horse had mouth problems, 90% of them would bit up. Ugh. I'm glad to be out of that environment.

Give this guy a break and use a bosal or rope nose hack?!!!  Bad hands & **** bits here.  Probably be nice to have a release with some massage work too.  What does he look like working?
