[RC] Halter-bridle fitting question - Betsy Thomas

Hello all,

Thanks for the advice a little while ago on my new Mustang pony. Dear Pony-Puff has lost about 50 pounds since coming off pasture and going to work most days. She's on about 12 pounds of grass hay and 12 ounces of LMF Super Supplement daily, divided into three meals. I can now feel her ribs with light pressure, and her crest has gone down enough that her mane actually flipped to the other side-- I didn't realize manes could do that! Rain gutter on her back is almost gone, too. She looks pretty good, and people at the barn have commented on how much more in shape she looks now. She is a cute little critter!

Anyway, my Christmas present finally showed up today-- a biothane halter-bridle. I'm used to an english bridle with a cavesson. Should the cavesson on the halter-bridle fit like my english bridle, or looser like a halter? What about the throatlatch? She goes in a loose- ring snaffle.

Might do a local "fun ride" on an endurance trail in the next few months.

Betsy
