    Rusty15 replied to a thread Western Myler Bits in Western
    So the seven is less severe than the flat shank? Ok. I did find that it's 1/4" longer than the flat shank. Does that make a difference.

    I hope that helped! Also there are some good facebook tack swaps for finding used saddles and tack for good prices. I highly recommend looking there.

    I've never ever seen it happen. I hate curb straps on snaffles. They're a pain. English riders don't think about it as much because the noseband...

I've ridden forever, and grew up taking lessons and helping with the race horse my dad and his friend bought and trained. I now own one lovely AQHA palomino mare. She's smart, quirky, and lame as can be. She will be a very large pet ufn. I also assist my sister with her sorrel Appendix gelding. I'm a jack of all trades (master of none) when it comes to riding. But really want to get back into jumping. And may be horse shopping again the near future.

I work in the energy industry and am pursuing a degree in Entrepreneurship. I'd like to own a tack store! I now reside in the great state of ND with my family, including the aforementioned ponies, 2 cockatiels, and a toy aussie.

I have a passion for all things historical and love vintage anything! I also love anything to do with ghosts, cryptozoology, etc. I play the violin and am a total geek. I also enjoy football and absolutely worship the band Coldplay.
