Survey

I have some real updates coming but I'm waiting on some videos to finish loading (my computer is horrible with videos) so until then, I figured I'd try this out.

Hmm, honestly, Artemis.  A horse that I've raised from a foal.

5. What kind of bit do you use and why?
Socks goes in a curb bit because that's what she's always been in and that's what she responds best to.  Artemis currently doesn't have a bit but she'll be started in a snaffle.  Jimmy switches between the bitless bridle and a snaffle, depending on what we're doing with him.

I really enjoyed this post. It was nice to get to know your thoughts...you and I share many of the same opinions. :-) I have the same problem with my reins, BTW; either too tight or too long.
