Re: [RC] Introducing your horse to a crupper - Marirose Six

All I can say is I don't like to look back and see the crupper flopping
It seems to me if there's that much movement, that would be annoying and
even cause friction rubs.  I adjust it so there's a bit of give, but so
when the horse is standing still the crupper goes straight from the
ring to the tail, NOT in a C-shape off to one side.

I agree with you, Sharon. I keep the crupper snug also (on  my mules &
horses). I think that if it's dangling there loose that it would be a much
bigger 'surprise' when it comes tight going down a hill. Also, by the time
it would get tight, the saddle must have moved forward quite a ways.
