Bit Update!

Sun Aug 24, 2014, 4:52 PM


First off, thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes! Really made my day!

As some of you might remember, I'd been considering trying a curb bit on Sawyer for awhile- not because of any issue we were having, he goes well in whatever I put him in, but since I've come to find that all information regarding horses is heresay I wanted to try them for myself. 
I had planned to purchase this bit: tinyurl.com/maxycaj but I was balking at the price tag (not that it wouldn't be worth it, but it'd be a pricey experiment). Dropped by the tack store earlier today and found this little bugger: tinyurl.com/n8rxew2 not perfect, but similiar and with a much more palatable pricetag (and of course, it's so much more rewarding to go shopping at a brick and mortar store, LOL!).
Went out to the barn for just a few minutes this evening to take some wither tracings, decided to go ahead and try the bit. Seemed like it was the right size upon hanging it up to Sawyer's other bits, good sign. Offered it too him with some feed, let him take it and spit it out... when I offered it up again without feed, he snatched it right into his mouth! He's normally well behaved for bridling, but not that keen- he's rather fond of the copper roller I think, haha. But alas, despite it looking like it was big enough it seemed to be pinching. *sad trombone* But, what the heck I thought, I went ahead and took him to the roundpen to work him in hand. Even if I was going to have to return it, I might as well see if it would be worth investing in a more expensive curb. Low and behold, as soon as I started asking him to flex the bit magically fit correctly; he liked the copper roller so much he had been sucking on it, apparently! Making the bit appear tighter than it was! :XD:
I only worked him in it for maybe 5 minutes tonight, walked him in hand with it and then hopped on for a few laps around the round pen to try some vertical flexion, and he went beautifully. Based on his reaction I'm wondering if somebody had actually broke him to the curb before... that or he was really happy to give to the poll pressure.
Looking forward to riding in it more soon!  :la:

Thanks again for all the birthday wishes all. :tighthug:

P.S. I think I missed a few birthdays myself in the time I've been on-and-off, so Happy Birthday to anybody I missed!
