Re: [RC] bitting question - Jonni

----- Original Message ----- 
From: Katrina O'Neal
My suggestion is to switch to a plain full cheek snaffle; you have a bit
more control. You know this horse well enough by now to know her "barge
points." So BEFORE she starts to get "bargie", stop her using your lateral
flexion. Disengage her hindquarters, have her "come through" and then
proceed. At the least little sign of barginess, do it again. <<<<

Ahhh, but it was mentioned the horse barges after it has balked at the water
/ mud, and it's buddy has gone on ahead, then it barges and rushes through
the water / mud as quick as it can. If the horse was schooled on the water /
mud to not balk, and to go forward on it's own, not having to follow another
horse...then it would not barge, eh??? Just a thought.......
